He has worked in agricultural activities for more than 10 years, he has a piece of land where he grows different kinds of grain, his family is dependent on the harvest and the sale of it, that's why he always does his best to keep the land in good shape.

This time around he has sown corn and he is working really hard on it so he can have a good harvest, that's why he needs to request a loan of 1000 new soles that he plans to use in purchasing fertilizer for his crops.

Erasmo is a family man. His wish is to give them a better quality of life. In the community, his family and neighbors consider him a responsible and hardworking person.
