Lauriano, 62, lives in San Felipe, a mountain district in northern Peru. San Felipe is about two hours from the city of Jaen and farming--coffee, rice and fruits, mostly--is a major source of income for local people.

Lauriano grows limes on his farm and sells his lime crop to buyers in Pucara and Chiclayo. He also grows beans. He is applying for a 2,500 new soles loan, part of which he will use to buy manure for fertilizing his fields and the rest to buy lime trees so that he can grow his business and, in turn, increase his income.

More information about this loan

This product was created to assist Edpyme Alternativa to expand their reach into rural areas of Northern Peru in order to attend more underserved populations. Kiva funding allows the institution to access the Northern areas of the Piura, Lambayeque, and Cajamarca regions, which are generally too costly to serve and therefore less attended by financial institutions.
