Edwin's story

Edwin, age 47, lives with his wife and children in the Nanchoc district. He lives in a peaceful community. The population there devotes itself to farming, commerce, and livestock. It is in the San Miguel province in the Cajamarca Región on the northern highlands of Peru.

He and his wife raise pigs and small animals in the area behind his house. He also provides bricklaying services. They are an enterprising family.

He has requested a loan for 3,500 soles to buy small animals, which he will later sell for a larger price.
