A loan of $550 helped the purchase of fertilizers to maintain his sweet potato and alfalfa crops.


Florencio's story

Florencio is sixty-five years old, single and resides with his sister in Santa Rosa, which is mainly a fishing district. It is located more than twenty five minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

Since he was young he has dedicated himself to farm work. He has a plot of land in the locality called Laguna Grande, located five minutes from where he lives. There he usually plants sweet potatoes and alfalfa. Thanks to these crops he can help his family get ahead and pay for his expenses.

Florencio has a lot of experience handling these crops. Currently he wishes to maintain them by applying fertilizers to guarantee a good harvest. Because of this he believes it is advisable to request a loan of 1500 soles from Edpyme Alternativa, with which he will purchase the fertilizers that he needs to achieve his objective.
