A loan of $550 helped buying fertilizers and pesticides to maintain his corn fields.


Pablo's story

Pablo is 60 years old. He is married and has two children who are already grown and independent. He lives with his wife in the agricultural district of Cayaltí, an area which has been experiencing moderate commercial growth in recent years. The district is located one hour from the city of Chiclayo. Since he was very young, Pablo has worked in agriculture, like most of the men in his area. He worked for an agricultural company for several years, and with his savings from this work, he was able to acquire a piece of land of his own, where he cultivates grains and cereals to earn income and help his family get ahead. Currently, his fields are planted with corn, and he hopes to have a good harvest so that he can give his family the stability they deserve. It is for this reason that he is working arduously to improve the yield of his crops. To help him achieve this objective, he has requested a loan of 1500 Peruvian new soles from Edpyme Alternativa, which he plans to invest in buying fertilizers and pesticides to maintain his crops and ensure good production. Pablo is a hard-working man who enjoys what he does for a living. His greatest desire is to continue working so that he can give his wife the qualify of life she deserves. He has worked with our institution in the past, and he has been punctual and responsible with his payments.
