Jose Luis's story
José Luis is a 35-year-old father who lives with his wife and son in the Las Pampas area, which is an agricultural zone in the Pimental district. It is mostly know for its beaches, which are always visited by tourists, and is located 20 minutes from the city of Chiclayo. He has worked in agriculture (agriculture and ranching) since he was very young. He started off helping his father and later, with his savings was able to buy his own land where he plants "chala" corn (a type of corn used for livestock feed), which he uses to feed the cattle from which he makes a living. Every day he milks the cows and sells that to a middleman. This business is his only source of income so he tries to maintain it as best he can. He would like to care for his crop of corn by applying fertilizers. For this reason he is requesting a loan of 1,000 new soles from Edpyme Alternativa, which he will use for that purpose. José Luis is a hard worker and very devoted to his family. His greatest dream is to keep growing as a businessman so that he can provide them with a better standard of living. He has previously worked with Edpyme Alternative and has show punctuality and responsibility with his payments.
