Edilberto's story

Edilberto is a 29 year old father that lives with his wife and their three children in the settlement of El Sandial, a rural area located in the Pítipo district in the province of Ferreñafe. The residents here work mainly in agriculture. It is located more than an hour from the city of Chiclayo.

Edilberto works in agriculture, focusing on the cultivation of the hard, yellow variety of corn. He has a plot of farm land where he usually plants his corn twice a year. In addition, he raises and sells small animals. He supports his family with his earnings, trying to help them to get ahead.

These activities are very important to him and he works very hard to make a go of it so that he will have a good harvest. Currently, he needs to buy fertilizers and pesticides which he plans to use to maintain his crops so that they will produce well. In order to acheive this goal he has decided to request a loan for 1000 nuevos soles (Peruvian currency). This will be his first loan with Edpyme Alternativa.

Edilberto is a responsible father and is very dedicated to his family. His greatest desire is to continue working so that he can give them a better quality of life. In the area where he lives he is quite well-known and is highly regarded by his neighbors.
