Juan
Juan is a 36 year old father who lives with his wife and children in the area of Choloque, which is in the lower central village of Tongorrape in Motupe District. This agricultural region lies in the Province of Lambayeque, which is 1½ hours away from the city of Chiclayo.


Juan has been working in the fields from a young age. He began working as a laborer for farms in the area, but the need to get hold of additional revenue to move his family forward convinced him to start saving money to buy his own farmland. With great effort, he was able to acquire a plot of land that measures two hectares where he currently grows corn.


Juan wants to achieve good production from his crop so that he can secure good earnings. For this reason, he wants to maintain his land with compost. In order to meet this objective, he saw the need to apply for his first loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1500 PEN so that he can buy fertilizers.


Juan is an honest person who always thinks about the welfare of his family. He continues to work as a farm laborer in his free time. His neighbors and acquaintances consider him to be a peaceful and trustworthy person.

Juan es un padre de familia de 36 años de edad que vive junto a su esposa y a sus hijos en el sector Choloque del centro poblado menor Tongorrape en el distrito de Motupe, una zona agrícola de la provincia de Lambayeque, ubicada a hora y media de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Se dedica a trabajar en labores agrícolas desde muy joven, empezó trabajando como obrero en los campos de cultivo de la zona, pero la necesidad de agenciarse de mayores ingresos para sacar adelante a su familia hizo que empezara a ahorrar dinero para adquirir un terreno de cultivo propio.

Juan desea obtener una buena producción de su cultivo de modo que se asegure buenas ganancias, por ello desea mantenerlo abonado, siguiendo este objetivo se ha visto en la necesidad de solicitar por primera vez a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 1500 nuevos soles que piensa utilizar en la compra de fertilizantes.

Juan es una persona bastante honrada y que siempre trabaja pensando en el bienestar de su familia. Actualmente sigue trabajando como obrero agricola durante sus tiempos libres. Sus vecinos y conocidos le consideran una persona tranquila y de confianza.
