Oscar's story

Oscar is 36 years old and lives together with his son in Chilcal, located in a rural area called Oyotun, two hours away from the city of Chiclayo, in the northern coast of Peru.

All his family members have a close relation. His son helps him to raise farm animals such as pigs, ducks and hens. He runs his business in his backyard. He is well-known locally and has a good, fixed customer base.

Oscar has requested a loan of 1,000 nuevos soles [PEN] to make some home improvements. He will buy windows and doors in order to have a safer house where to live.
