Santos Samuel's story

Santos Samuel is 40 years old. He lives with his wife and children in the village of Huamachuco in a rural area of the Cañaris district. This district is located in the province of Ferreñafe which belongs to the Lambayeque region on the north coast of Peru. The people there work mainly in agriculture, commerce and cattle raising.

Santos has grown corn for 15 years and therefore has a lot of experience with this. He and his wife put a lot of effort into their work. Santos has asked for a loan of 2,000 nuevos soles to buy manure for his cultivation of corn and to pay for hired help for the harvest. By this he wants to be able to offer his products to his customers in a timely manner.
