Sergio's story

Sergio is 36 years old; and is in a common law marriage. He lives in his own house with his partner and their children. Their house is located in La Matanza, a hamlet of the Morropòn district, and it is equipped with electricity: about 500 families live in this community.
Sergio is a livestock farmer, breeding sheep, goats, pigs and poultry; he then sells the animals in the local market. He has been engaging in this activity for approximately 4 years, so he knows the trade to perfection. On top of this, he also offers moto- taxi* services in his free time.
He is asking for a loan of 1008 PEN, and he will use it to buy an engine for his vehicle: this will help him improve his standard of living.

*A “moto taxi” is a motorcycle with a tricycle-like attachment.
