A loan of $725 helped to purchase fertilizers for her crop of corn.

Maria Etelvina's story

María is 47 years old, in a common law marriage, and lives with her family in Batagrande. This district is located 45 minutes away from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the Department of Lambayeque.

María has been engaged in farm work for more than ten years. She raises small animals at home and sells them to traders who visit the area in order to acquire them for resale in the cities of Cayalti and Chiclayo. In addition, she has a field where she grows all types of grain. María also works a field laborer for an agro-industrial company.

She currently grows corn on her land and works hard to make sure that this crop results in good production. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 2000 PEN. The funds will be invested in the purchase of fertilizers to maintain her corn.
