Elio's story

Elio, 32, lives in the rural area of Polvazal, where the residents work in agriculture and commerce. It's in Morropón, in the Piura area, located on the northern coast of Peru and surrounded by desert, carob trees, hills, and savannah with a hot tropical valley climate.

Elio's very well known in the area. He has grown and sold black-eyed peas and corn for 10 years. He sells throughout the Buenos Aires district, beginning on the right bank where he has steady customers.

He has requested a loan for 3,000 nuevos soles [PEN] to buy fertilizer to take care of his crops and have a better harvest as well as additional income.
