Rubén David
Rubén is 26 years old and lives with his wife and three children in his in-law´s house in the village of Valle Hermoso near the Monsefú district which is 20 minutes outside the city of Chiclayo.

He has been committed to farming for his whole life. When he was young he helped his father with this kind of work and now he´s starting to earn his own living. One month ago he started renting his own piece of land where he´s planted onions and lettuce.

He also owns a mototaxi, a small vehicle for transporting cargo and people. He uses the money earned from his mototaxi to cover some of the daily household expenses since right now there is no income from his farm like there will be during harvest.

To continue improving his crops, Rubén is requesting a loan of 1500 new soles from Edpyme Alternativa for the first time. He plans on investing it in fertilizers and sprays so he can get a better harvest.

Rubén dreams of having his own land where he can plant his crops and move his family forward. He is a hard worker and has already started building his own house in a little village near his crops. His neighbors consider him a very helpful, honorable and responsible young man.
