Valerio's story

Valerio, who is 48 years old and a single father, lives with his children in his own house made of rustic materials in the district of Pimpingos, in the province of Cutervo and the department of Cajamarca, Peru. He has very good references, personal as well as work-related, on the part of the residents of the zone. The majority of the inhabitants of this area work in agriculture, commerce, and raising livestock.

He works in agriculture, specifically, raising coffee of the Catimor variety, with more than 15 years of experience in this work.

He is applying for a loan to invest in the purchase of compost and fertilizers and to pay his workers. In this way, he hopes to obtain greater income for him and his family.
