Patrocinio's story

Patrocinio, 57 years old, is married and lives in his own house, made of rustic materials, with his wife, in the district of Colasay, Jaén province, Cajamarca department, in the country of Peru. He has very good personal and work references from the people of the area. The inhabitants of this place work primarily in agriculture, trade, and raising animals.

He works in agriculture, specifically growing rice, with over 17 years of experience in the field. He asks for a loan to invest in the purchase of soil amendments, fertilizers, and to pay his workers. In this way, he will get more income for himself and his family.

Patrocinio is a returning borrower with Edpyme Alternativa.
