Heberardo's story

Heberardo is 22 years old. He lives with his partner and has two children. He lives in his own home with his partner and their two minor children. The home is located in the Caserío, Platillos en the Tambogrande district. He lives in the rural part of the district, but they have electricity.

Heberardo makes a living in agriculture, given that he inherited 10 hectare from his father, for which he has proof of possession from the Lieutenant Governor of the village. On this land he plants corn two times per year. Additionally, he works raising livestock, which when are the right weight and size are ideal to sell in the local market. With the income, he is able to cover his and his family's expenses.

Heberardo wants to buy fertilizer and agricultural chemicals for his crops and also wants to hire laborers for their corn crop. This is why he has requested a loan of 2500 soles in order to achieve his goal.
