Mercedes's story

Mercedes is 59 years old and lives with his partner in the district of Pucará, a province of Jaén located in the Cajamarca region in the northern mountain range of Peru. His community mainly works in agriculture, raising cattle and trade.

Mercedes has worked providing an overland transport service for more than three years. His route is Pucará - Pandachi and return. Mercedes needs a loan to buy tyres, filters and other items and to service and maintain his vehicle. With this he hopes to improve the service he provides and ensure that everything is working well with the tool of his trade so that he can continue to generate his own income which will allow him to have a better quality of life.
