Antonio's story

Antonio is 58 years old and lives together with his wife in the village of El Lirio in a rural zone of the Colasay district. The area is characterized by its verdant landscapes and a community that is engaged in agricultural, commercial and livestock farming activities. It is located two hours from the city of Jaén in Cajamarca, a region in the northern highlands of Peru. Antonio works in agriculture, specifically cultivating coffee bushes. He has 14 years of experience in this field and is part of an enterprising family. Antonio has requested a loan of 1,700 nuevos soles for use in horticultural work, the application and incorporation of pest-control substances, fertilizers, and labor for the harvest. He believes that these actions will result in physiological, morphological and productivity improvements in his cultivation, as well as ensure a timely harvest. With greater production and better product quality, he will have no problems selling his product.
