A loan of $725 helped to buy balanced animal feed.

Manuel Alfonso's story

Manuel Alfonso, 46, lives with his wife and children in the Mocupe district. The residents of this quiet community, located an hour and forty-five minutes from the city of Chiclayo on Peru's north coast, are merchants, cattle ranchers, and farmers. Manuel raises cattle and sells small animals at the local market. He has applied for a loan of 2000 nuevos soles to buy balanced animal feed to increase output to sell to his customers and also to buy pigs to generate more income for his family.
