Hipolito's story

The family has earned a living selling gasoline fuel for about eight years. Their business is located in the Limón village camp. With the help of his daughter, his wife raises small animals in the back of their home which are later sold to their customers, who are their neighbors.

Hipólito has asked for a loan of 1,000 new soles to buy a greater amount of gasoline and generate more income for his family.
