Jan Manuel's story

Jan Manuel is 29 years old. He lives with his wife and their children in the district of Lagunas, a community that is dedicated to agriculture, commerce and raising cattle. It is located in the Chiclayo province in the Lambayeque region on Peru's northern coast.

He works in commerce, selling alfalfa, peppers, and other products, which he has done for the past three years. He also offers his services as an exterminator and an agricultural day laborer on the farms of his neighbors and other residents of the community.

He is an entrepreneurial father who is seeking a loan of 1,500 nuevos soles to repair the roof of his home and plaster the walls. This will allow him to have a secure home in which to live.
