Remigio's story

Remigio, 22, lives with his wife and son in Salitre, a rural, farming area in San Felipe district, which is about two hours from the city of Jaén, Cajamarca in the northern mountains of Peru. He has been farming for five years and has a 1.5 hectare lime farm. He harvests the fruit weekly and sells it in his neighborhood to fruit merchants, who take it to the city of Chiclayo. Remigio also raises cattle, of which he has five head. He has applied for a loan of 3000 nuevos soles to maintain his land so that he can continue to earn money for his family.
