Gricerio's story

58-year-old Gricerio is married and lives in a house of rustic material with his partner and their two children. He lives in the district of Santo Tomás, in the province of Cutervo, department of Cajamarca in the country of Perú. He has a lot of good personal and professional references from those who live in his area. The majority of the inhabitants of this area make a living through agriculture, business and raising cattle.

He earns a living through agriculture, specfically growing coffee of the Catimor variety. He has 1 hectare to date, resistent to diseases and plagues, the plantation is in a good phytosanitary state. He has four years of experience in the field. Additionally, he earns a living breeding small animals (chickens, guinea pigs, pigs) and grows cereal products (yucca, bananas, vituca) for his own consumption and occasionally for sale. He also works as a farm labourer. The loan destination will be to invest in the maintainance and growth of one hectare of coffee to ensure a good production for the 2016 harvest. This will be reflected in a greater volume of sales and ultimately obtain greater income so he can improve the quality of life for him and his family.

Gricerio is repeat customer for Edpyme Alternativa. He cosigned the loan with his wife.
