Amancio's story

Amancio is 36 and lives with his wife and children in the district of Oyotun, two hours from the city of Chiclayo on the north coast of Peru. The people there earn their living in agriculture, business, and livestock.

With the help of his wife, Amancio has made his living for more than 10 years raising and selling animals including ducks, hens, roosters, chickens [for cooking], and pigs. He has requested a loan of 1,000 soles to buy animals in large numbers as well as balanced feed. He'll offer them to his clients for a good price to make more income for his family.
