but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to invest in maintaining one hectare of coffee crop in production.

Fausto's story

Fausto is 33 years old and partnered. He lives in his own house made of rustic material with his partner and their son in the Santo Tomás district, Cutervo province and Cajamarca department of Peru. He has very good personal and work references from the residents in the area. The residents in this area mostly earn a living in agriculture, trade and livestock.

He earns a living in agriculture, specifically growing Catimor variety coffee, and has more than five years of experience in this work. He also raises cattle and to date has 10 heads of cattle. He also grows bread products like yuca, banana and vituca (a relative of yuca).

He will invest the loan in maintaining his one hectare coffee crop, ensuring a good production for the 2017 season. This will be reflected in a higher volume of sales which will earn better income to improve his and his family's quality of life.

Fausto is a returning member for Edpyme Alternativa.
