Jose Del Carmen's story

José, 36, is married living in the La Raya hamlet where the main activity is farming. It’s located in Túcume District, 30 minutes from the city of Chiclayo. He has been working in farming associated activities for many years. He tends to plant rice in his fields. When it’s harvested the final product is sold to regional mills. José wants to buy fertilizer for his rice crops. He hopes this action will lead to a good harvest. Because of this he’s had the need to request a 2000 new sol loan from Edpyme Alternativa. José is quite a calm, responsible person. His greatest wish is to grow as a businessman and to get ahead.
