Elias's story

35-year-old Elías lives with his wife and children in the district of Oyotún in Chiclayo province, which forms part of the Lambayeque region on the north coast of Peru. The people there work in farming, trade and cattle rearing.

Elías and his wife have been breeding and selling animals such as cocks, hens and chickens for 5 years and they run their business from their home. Elías has applied for a loan of 1,800 nuevos soles to buy formulated feed to fatten up his animals and also to build coops to accommodate his animals better.
