A loan of $1,150 helped to finish building his house and to buy pulses (legumes).

Evaristo's story

Evaristo is 51 years old, married and has three children, one of whom is still dependent on him. He lives in the rural area of Morrope district, in a small community of approximately 20 families which has electricity. Evaristo's business is raising and selling livestock (he keeps cows, goats and farmyard birds). He has been in this business for ten years. His business is located at home and he learned from his parents which means that he knows this work inside out. In addition, he also grows pulses (legumes). This is the part of his business that he is looking to expand.

Evaristo will invest his loan in finishing the building of his house and in buying pulses from farms. There is competition in this business but there is also a large market and he has experience. He takes his produce to the wholesale market in Piura once a week to sell.
