Alfonso Cecilio's story

Alfonso is a hard-working man, 62 years old. He had 2 children and lives with his partner in the locality of La Punta, which is located in Arequipa. He has been working in the fields for approximately 20 years. He learned this business from his parents, who were the ones who taught him the different care that each crop requires, as well as the appropriate types of fertilizers.

Currently, he grows rice which he then sells to his neighbors, since he is very well-known for the good health of his harvests. But, he needs to diversify his production to increase his sales. For this reason, he asks for the microloan to provide maintenance to his chili pepper crop to have a more productive harvest. Alfonso hopes in the future to invest his earnings in expanding his crops and to continue enjoying well-being with his spouse.
