The activity Elmer carries out is raising small farm animals (sheep, goats, pigs and barnyard fowl) that are sold in the local market. This activity has been going on for four years approximately; that is to say he knows it to perfection.

His wife also works selling food from home and has regular customers.

The amount of the requested loan is 1000 new soles to use to finish building his house on land that he inherited from his family, so that he may live more comfortably with his family.
