Maximo's story

Maximo is 56 years old, is married, and lives with his wife and children in one of the farmhouses in the agricultural district of Olmos; an area well known for producing limes and passion fruit. It's in the province of Lambayeque and is more than an hour and a half away from the city of Chiclayo. He works in agriculture, specifically in the cultivation of limes. He has a parcel of land where he grows them and harvests constantly so he can sell the limes to the various wholesalers in the area, and to the general public. He has a lot of experience in the management of these crops and always works hard to maintain his business, as he depends on it to support his family. Maximo would like to acquire some fertilizers to be able to nourish his crops in a way that will secure good production. To achieve his goal, he has requested 1500 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
