A loan of $375 helped to buy fruit to sell at an area market.


Hernan Ismael's story

Hernán Ismael is thirty years old. He lives in the district of Buenos Aires where the people work in industries such as trade, transportation, and the cultivation of grains and fruit trees. It's a community that's known for its haurango forests. It is located on the northern coast of Peru, two hours away from the city of Piura. He provides transportation services in an auto rickshaw that he owns, taking passengers to the nearby villages of his community. He also sells seasonal fruit. He has applied for a loan of 1000 Peruvian Nuevos Soles to buy fruit to sell at area markets to earn additional income for a better quality of life.
