A loan of $525 helped to buy natural wax panels for his bee hives.

Segundo Hermógenes's story

Segundo, 47, is married and lives with his wife and two children, 16 and 15 years old, in Pucalá district, which is 40 minutes away from the city of Chiclayo.

He has been a beekeeper for the past two years. He tells us that he has been raising bees on lands near the Huaca Rajada arqueological complex (where The Lord of Sipán was found) and he sells the honey in a small commercial complex near the site's museum.

He started this business thanks to training opportunities provided by the Italo-Peruano Fund to residents of the area so that they could earn their living in productive activities, like beekeeping, crafts-making, woodworking, etc.

Segundo wants to increase his production by installing new hives. To do so, however, he needs natural wax panels that will facilitate the bees' work as well as a certain substance that will prevent ants from attacking the hives. He does not have sufficient funds to do so; therefore, he has called upon Edpyme Alternativa requesting a 1500 new sol loan.

His greatest wish is to continue working in order to see his children become professionals. This is his third collaboration with our Institution and he has shown himself to be a punctual and responsible client with respect to repayments.

In the photo, he shows the panels and plates that he needs to fill in order to reach his objective.
