A loan of $550 helped to build a room.


Jose Arturo's story

Jose Arturo is 57 years old and lives with his wife in the Zaña district, where the people there are farmers, sell livestock, and work as merchants. It’s located one hour away from the city of Chiclayo, on Peru’s northern coast. He and his wife have been raising and selling small animals such as ducks, turkeys, and pigs behind their house for five years. Occasionally he also works as an electrician. He is asking for a loan of 1,500 Soles so he can finish building a room onto his house and then rent it out and generate additional income for his family.
