A loan of $550 helped to buy fertilizers for Francisco's corn.

Francisco's story

Francisco is the 46 year old father of a family. He lives with his wife and children in the Molio El Carment sector of the Motupe district. This district is part of the Lambayeque province and is located 1 hour and 45 minutes outside of the city Chiclayo.

He has worked as a farmer since he was young. He began working as a farmhand in various farms in the region, and with much effort was able to acquire his own farm 5 years ago. He grows corn, and puts all his efforts into this work and he depends on it to support his family.

The crop is already very advanced, and soon will give a crop. Francisco wants to ensure good production via water and fertilizers, and for this he is asking Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1500 nuevos soles that will help him complete this task.

Francisco is a hardworking person, his greatest longing is to continue growing as an entrepreneur in order to bring his family a better quality of life. His neighbors and friends consider him to be a responsible person, and he is always ready to help those who need it.
