Jose Mercedes's story

José M. is 62 years old. He has two adult children. He lives in his own house located in Barrio Nuevo in Mórrope District. The community’s standard of living is at the subsistence level. Most of the workers work independently in commerce and raising animals; some also farm and work as employees.

The activity that José does is raising animals in corrals located at home. His spouse cares for the animals. The animal business is located at home and he has a regular clientele made up of merchants in the markets in Chiclayo.

The loan he’s asking for is for 2000 new soles that he’ll use to invest in his animal business buying small fowl, goats and sheep to raise. He plans to use this loan to expand the corrals and to buy feed to fatten up the small animals and the pigs. He has currently set the goal of expanding his animal inventory because this is a very profitable activity in the zone.
