A loan of $725 helped to acquire fertilizers for his crops.


César's story

Cesar is a 33 year-old father who lives together with his wife and child in the village of Wiracocha - Valley of the Incas, in Tambogrande district, an agricultural area of Piura region, more than four hours from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of Lambayeque region.

Cesar has a plot of land where he grows mangos and lemons. He has several years experience in this activity and, over the years, he has learned a lot about managing his crops. He uses the income that he makes from these activities to cover his family's daily financial needs.

Cesar would like to buy fertilizers so that he can maintain his land in order to set up a new lemon orchard. This will enable him to obtain a good harvest. In order to achieve his goal, Cesar is requesting a loan for 2,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
