Marcelino's story

Marcelino is a 33-year-old father. He lives in his own house together with his wife and their young son. The house is located in one of the settlements which make up the agricultural district of Chulucanas, in the Piura region. It already has all of the basic utility services.

The work he carries out is raising small livestock (sheep, pigs and poultry). When they reach the ideal size and weight, they are sold at the local market. He has more than 4 years of experience raising animals. In addition, he has a stable job in an agro-industrial company in his area. The income he receives from these activities allows him to help his young son get ahead in life.

Marcelino is currently requesting a loan for 2000 new soles. He had previously worked with a loan financed through Kiva, and it went very well for him, for which he is very grateful. The aim of the current loan will be to maintain his livestock, buy commercial feed and make improvements to his enclosures. Marcelino expresses appreciation in advance to the people who will help with this opportunity.
