Aurelio's story

Aurelio is 55 years old, and is married. He lives in his own home in Morropón, department of Piura, some four hours from Chiclayo, capital of the Lambayeque region.

For many years, he has raised and sold cattle. He fattens the animals and when they have reached a good size, he sells them in local markets. He has a loyal, established clientele. He learned the business from his father, which is to say that he knows the field to the nth degree. His business is well received, since animals raised in the country are in demand because of the flavor of their meat. He has requested a loan of 1000 new soles, to buy balanced feed, and to purchase more animals to fatten and sell. His goal is to increase his revenue, in order to continue to invest in his business. In the future, he would like to have a ranch for cattle and goats.
