Valentin's story

Valentín is 67 years old. He lives with his children in the village of Huacapampa, a rural district of Cañaris. Located in the Province of Ferreñafe in the Lambayeque Region of northern Peru, its population is engaged in agriculture, trade, and livestock. He has been doing carpentry for 13 years, carving wood for tables, chairs, benches, and doors among others. He is requesting a loan of 2501 soles to buy wood to carry out his jobs and thus offer them to his customers, thereby generating more income for his family.
