Lorenzo's story

Lorenzo is 23 years old, single, and lives with his family in Tongorrape sector, a rural, agricultural area in Motupe district, Lambayeque province, one and a half hours from the city of Chiclayo.

Lorenzo works as a passion fruit and lemon trader. The area where he lives is noted for producing these fruits. He acquires his products from the farmers in the area and then sells them to the processing plants in the area. He also works as a laborer on a farm in his area.

Lorenzo would like to expand his business, obtaining stable capital so that he can continue acquiring more fruit to offer for sale. For this reason, he is requesting a loan for 1,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa that will allow him to achieve his goal.
