Juan's story

Juan, who is 69 years old, is married to Guillermina, with whom he has four children, who live with him in the home that he bought 41 years ago. For more than 24 years he has been making beautiful embroidery typical of the towns surrounding his area. He does that work in the evenings, since during the day he takes care of his animals, such as guinea pigs and chickens. He has a great number of them, which he sells to the residents of his area, as well as to a business that exports guinea pigs. He has his own working capital, nevertheless he always needs a little to be able to improve the quality of his animals. He recognizes that with the passing of the years, he already does not have the same physical strength, and for that reason it takes a little longer to carry out the physical activities. Nevertheless, he works with great conscientiousness to keep his business afloat and thus obtain earnings. Juan will invest the 800 PEN in the purchase of balanced food to nourish his animals, and he promises to make his payments in a punctual manner.
