José Ramos's story

José is a 26 years old bachelor who lives with his parents in Campiña Chacupe Bajo. This is an agricultural area in La Victoria which is 20 minutes away from the city of Chiclayo.

José grows vegetables, roots and other crops. He has years of experience and is very adept at what he does, and uses his father's farmland to grow his produce. He also lends his agricultural services to other farmers in the area.

José is requesting a loan of 1000 PEN to buy insecticide and fertilizer which he will use to ensure optimum output of of his current crop of 1.5 acres of sweet potato and 0.62 acres of coriander.

He is a well-known and respected person in his area and his greatest hope is to continue developing his farming experience and eventually owning his own cropland.
