Santos Julio's story

Santos Julio, 63, lives with his wife and children in the La Matanza district. In this area the residents work in agriculture, animal husbandry, and commerce. In this community there are expansive carob forests. It is located 2 hours from the city of Piura on the northern coast of Peru.

Along with his family, Santos grows and sells bananas, distributing them to the markets in the area.

Santos is requesting a loan of 3,000 Peruvian soles to buy urea and fertilizers to fertilize his farm. This way, he will get a bigger output of crops to sell to his customers.
