Teofilo's story

Teofilo is a hard working 63 year old. He lives together with his three children and his wife in the city of Chachas which is located in Arequipa.

He earns a living breeding cattle by giving much attention, care, and food to them. He requests this small loan to help purchase construction materials to provide a safe home for his family. Teofilo hopes that in the future he can live comfortably and continue with good health.
