Asterio's story

Asterio is a father and is 50 years old. He lives with his wife and children in the town of Filoque, in a rural area that is located in the agricultural district of Olmos, an area in the province of Lambayeque. It is located more than 1 hour 45 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

He has been working in agriculture since he was young. He has a small piece of farmland where he has planted with passion fruit. This provides him with a steady income that he uses to provide for his family.

Asterio would like to buy some fertilizer and plant remedies to care for his crop and assure a good harvest. In order to do this, he is requesting a loan of PEN 2,000.00 from Edpyme Alternativa.

Asterio is a very level-headed and responsible man. He has had previous loans with Edpyme Alternativa and has been punctual in his payments.
