A loan of $525 helped buy fertilizer to maintain his rice crop.

Wenceslao's story

Wenceslao is 66 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and two grandchildren in the small village of Huaca de Barro, in the Morrope district, located an hour from the city of Chiclayo.

He has worked in agriculture for more than 20 years. He has some land under cultivation in a nearby zone. At this time, he has planted rice there. This business is the only source of sustenance he has had to maintain his family for this whole time. For this reason, he always gives all of himself to raise his crops.

The rice crop is already very far along, and Wenceslao needs to maintain it with the application of fertilizer, but he does not have enough capital to do this. For this reason he has seen the need to apply for the first time to Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1500 PEN.

He is a person who is well-known and admired by his neighbors in the community. They consider him an honest and hard-working man.
