Francisco's story

Francisco is 57 years old and lives with his son in the District of Pucará. His town is known for cultivating fruits such as pineapples, bananas, limes, and oranges; as well as for selling these same fruits and for livestock breeding. This community is located two hours away from the city of Jaén, which is located in the region of Cajamarca on the northern coast of Peru.

Francisco provides transportation services to passengers with the use of his motorcycle taxi. Occasionally he transports construction supplies, such as sand and gravel, to the surrounding areas of his community.

Francisco is requesting a loan of 1,200 PEN so that he can repair his vehicle. Part of the money will also be used to repair the façade of his home. The loan will enable him to continue working with a safe vehicle and to have a pleasant atmosphere in his home.
