Celmira's story

Celmira is 43 years old and is in a common-law relationship. She lives in her own house made of basic materials with her spouse and two children in the district of. Santo Tomás, Cutervo province, Cajamarca department in Peru. She has very good references both personal and for work from the residents of the region. The local inhabitants make a living mainly in agriculture, commerce and raising livestock.

She makes a living in agriculture, specifically growing Catimor varietal coffee. It is resistant to illnesses and infestation and she has over nine years experience in the field. Besides this she works raising small animals (pigs, chickens, guinea pigs) and growing food products (yucca, plantains, taro) for her own consumption and occasionally for sale. She is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of manure and fertilizer and to pay for labor to ensure good production for the 2018 season. This should be reflected in a greater volume of sales and in the end greater income so she can improve her quality of living and that of her family.

Celmira is a recurring partner of Edpyme Alternativa.
