Julián's story

Farming is suitable work only for those people who love the earth as a mother, a creator of futures for life, good futures with hope for the generations to come.

Julián, 76, who lives in Sololá, is married and has one child who works on his own. He has some land for farming, an extra job, because Julián's retired now after working in a public institution for 25 years.

Nevertheless, Julián knows that the land he was born to asks to be taken care of with a farmer's tenderness. He knows that by growing potatoes and other crops he's securing the future for his family and other generations.

For that reason Julián requested a loan as a major way to keep on securing that future that is so inspiring for his future generations.
