A loan of $725 helped to buy fertilizer for his lemon crop.


José's story

José is 34 years old and lives with his wife and two children in his own home in the rural area known as El Porvenir Hualtaco III in the district of Tambogrande. This agricultural area is located in the province of Piura, some four hours from the city of Chiclayo which is the capital of the Lambayeque region.

For five years now he has been growing and selling lemons on a small plot of land that he inherited from his father. He sells his products to an established customer base in the local market. He learned his business from his father and knows it very well.

José wants to buy fertilizer for lemon crop maintenance. He hopes to improve production and product quality so he can sell at a good price. To reach his goal he has requested a loan in the amount of 2,000 PEN through Edpyme Alternative.
