Agapito's story

Agapito is 53 years old. He is married and lives together with his wife and children in the village of Espinal in Oyotún district, a farming region which is almost two hours from the city of Chiclayo. Agapito has been doing agricultural work since he was a young boy. He currently owns a small plot of land where he sows different grains and cereals. This season he has planted rice and hopes to obtain a good harvest to support his family. For this reason he is working hard to achieve his goal. Currently he would like to acquire some fertilizers which will allow his crops to develop as well as possible. For this reason, he is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 500 nuevos soles. Agapito is a person who knows his business very well and who has always used his business to get his family ahead. People who know him have a lot of respect for him and think very highly of him.
