Armando's story

Armando, aged 51, has a partner and lives in his own home, built of rustic materials, with his wife and their three children in Pimpingos district, Cutervo province, Cajamarca department, Peru. He has very good personal and working references from local residents. The inhabitants of this area mainly work in agriculture, trade and cattle ranching.

He works in agriculture, specifically growing Catimor coffee, and has over three years' experience in doing so. He also works raising small animals (chickens, guinea pigs, pigs, etc.) and growing basic food crops (yucca, bananas, taro). The loan will be used to invest in maintaining and growing one hectare producing coffee, ensuring good production for the 2017 season, resulting in higher sales and therefore greater income, which will allow him to improve his quality of life and that of his family.

Armando is a repeat member of Edpyme Alternativa.
