A loan of $550 helped purchase fertilizers.

Juan's story

Juan is a 36 year old father who lives with his wife and children in the area of Choloque, which is in the lower central village of Tongorrape in Motupe District. This agricultural region lies in the Province of Lambayeque, which is 1½ hours away from the city of Chiclayo.

Juan has been working in the fields from a young age. He began working as a laborer for farms in the area, but the need to get hold of additional revenue to move his family forward convinced him to start saving money to buy his own farmland. With great effort, he was able to acquire a plot of land that measures two hectares where he currently grows corn.

Juan wants to achieve good production from his crop so that he can secure good earnings. For this reason, he wants to maintain his land with compost. In order to meet this objective, he saw the need to apply for his first loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1500 PEN so that he can buy fertilizers.

Juan is an honest person who always thinks about the welfare of his family. He continues to work as a farm laborer in his free time. His neighbors and acquaintances consider him to be a peaceful and trustworthy person.
