Juan Wilmer's story

Juan Wilmer is 36 and lives with his wife and their two children in Caserío de Mamaca, a rural part of San Felipe District. Many people in Caserío de Mamaca are farmers or ranchers as the climate is warm and the city of Jaén, in Cajamarca Region in the northern sierra of Peru, is two hours away.

Juan Wilmer has worked as a carpenter for over 11 years and has a workshop in his home, as well as a small grocery store. Juan Wilmer has applied for a loan of 3,000 new soles to purchase materials to continue growing his business. He hopes to meet the insatiable demand for his services in the region and earn a larger income for his family.
