A loan helped purchase peanut seeds to improve his harvest and generate greater earnings for his family.

Faustino's story

Faustino, 26, lives in a communal home and works on communal land. He is married and has two children. One of his sons attends the local elementary school and his other son is three years old. They live in the city of Muyupampa, in the Chuquisaca region or the Luis Calvo province.

Faustino's main job is growing peanuts, which he was trained to do by the Nor Sud Intercultural Foundation. He is seeking a loan to purchase peanut seeds and agrochemicals, and to build a fence. With these investments, he will be able to continue his work and generate new earnings since this region is great for growing peanuts. He will also be able to improve his family's living conditions.
