A loan of $550 helped to maintain his alfalfa plantation.

José's story

Jose is a father, he is 61 years old and he lives together with his wife in the community of Pomape, in the district of Monsefu. It is an agricultural region located half an hour from the city of Chiclayo.

Ever since he was a young man he has always worked in agriculture. He raises cattle and sells the milk they produce and he also keeps foraging plantations that he uses to feed the animals. With the income he earns from these businesses he is able to provide for his family.

Jose wishes to invest in the purchase of feed for his livestock to increase production in milk and improve his earnings. To this end he has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) in the amount of 1500 nuevos soles. He will purchase balanced feed and he will maintain his alfalfa cultivation.

Jose is someone who loves his work. Those that know him consider him to be honest and trustworthy. Previously he has had loans with Edpyme Alternativa and he has been a good and responsible client.
