A loan of $850 helped to buy fertilizers and maintain his vegetable garden.

Santos's story

Santos, 33, is married and has 3 children. He owns his home in the village of Peña Viva in the district of Tambogrande. He lives in a rural part of the district and the only utility he has is electricity.

Santos farms and raises small animals like sheep, pigs and chickens. He has 2 hectares of farmland planted with lemons that he harvests weekly and sells daily.

The 2200 nuevos soles requested will be used to buy fertilizers for his lemon crop and to weed it, as well as to buy feed for his animals so that he can sell them at a better price in the market.
