A loan of $1,075 helped to renovate his home by purchasing windows and installing a subfloor.


Martin's story

Martin is 57 years old and lives with his wife in their own home in the District of La Matanza. His town is known for agriculture, trade, and livestock breeding. This area is located in Morropon Province, which is part of the region of Piura on the northern coast of Peru.

Martin raises sheep. His wife prepares “chicha de jora” (a beverage made from corn). She sells this product from their home since she has a considerable clientele for selling this beverage since it is traditional in the northern area.

Martin is requesting a loan of 3,000 PEN so that he can buy windows and install a subfloor in his home. The rainy season will be coming in the next few months, so these improvements will provide protection during this time.
