Ismael's story

Ismael is 22 years old and lives with his wife and their youngest daughter in Caserío de San José de Lirio, a rural area in Callayuc district. It is a community with a varied climate, and the people who live there work in agriculture, small business and livestock-raising. It is located in Cutervo province, which is part of Cajamarca region in Peru's northern highlands.

He has been engaged in agriculture, especially coffee cultivation, for five years. His plantation is 10 minutes from his home, and together with his wife they do their best in the work they do.

He has requested a loan of 2500 nuevos soles in order to purchase fertilizer for maintaining his coffee plantation, and thereby generate greater income for his family.
