Porfirio's story

Porfirio, 53, is married and lives with his wife and children in Santa Rosa, Las Lomas district, Piura province. The area is located in Piura region over three hours from the city of Chiclayo, capital of Lambayeque region.

He is a farmer. He has a field where he usually plants corn. This activity is his most important source of family income so he always strives to care for it in the best possible way. He also raises sheep to sell.

Porfirio wants to get fertilizes and seed to plant corn on his property. He is, therefore, asking for his first, 1000 new sol, loan from Edpyme Alternativa to reach this goal.

He is quite an enterprising father with a strong drive to get ahead. His greatest wish is to continue growing as a businessman to provide his family with a better quality of life.
