Vicente Anastacio's story

Vicente is 49, married, and has three children. He lives in his own home in the Punto Nueve hamlet, in the rural Lambayeque zone. His home has running water, and there are approximately 100 families in his community.
Vincente sells sheep, cows and goats from his home. He learned this work from his parents; he knows this job like the back of his hand. Furthermore, he makes an additional income from his rice crops.
The requested 2000 Nuevos Soles will be used for the purchase of urea to fertilize his recently transplanted rice crops, and for the purchase of a heifer which is on sale. This is a strong business, but it has little inventory.
