Fredesman's story

Fredesman is a 33-year-old man who lives with his common-law wife and has two children in his care. He lives with his wife and children in his own home which is located in the small village of 8-4 Cruceta, in Tambogrande district. The house has electricity. This is a small community of approximately 100 families.

Fredesman's business is raising and selling livestock (sheep, goats, pigs and farmyard birds). When they reach an appropriate size and weight he sells them in the local market. He has been in this business for approximately five years. His business is located at home and he learned it from his parents. As a result, he knows the business inside out. In addition, Fredesman also farms crops. He has 0.8 hectares of farmland where he grows lemons which he harvests weekly. This makes him additional income.

Fredesman has requested a loan for 2,500 soles which he will invest in buying nutritionally-balanced feed for his livestock and fertilizers for his lemon crop. This investment will allow him to continue growing in his business.
