Victor Raul's story

Víctor Raúl is 44 years old. He lives in Piedra del Toro, in the rural area of Buenos Aires, two hours from the city of Piura on the north coast of Peru. The people in this district work in the cultivation of fruit, especially of mango, and also in trade and the raising of livestock.

Víctor Raúl provides services as a skilled worker. He prepares land for farming and is very reknowned for his work in his area.

He has asked for a loan of 3,500 nuevos soles in order to have maintenance work done on his vehicle, which is a tool he needs for the service he provides.
