Mariano
Mariano is 62 years old, he is single and lives with his sisters in the town of Ferreñafe, located 15 minutes away from the town of Chiclayo.

For almost all of his life he has engaged in agriculture: he owns some land where he generally plants crops such as sweet potatoes, beans and lima beans. In this occasion he has sown lima beans and he is currently working daily in order to get a good production, as his family’s livelihood depends on the income of this activity.

Mariano wishes to make sure his production will be good, and for this reason he thought it wise to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1000 PEN: he will use it to buy fertilizers and plant nutrients which will guarantee the productiveness of his land.

He has already worked with Kiva, and he says that thanks to the loan he had received his previous crops could grow and produce as expected. Mariano has good references from both his country and his town neighbors, who consider him a very responsible and hard-working person.
