A loan of $1,075 helped to buy fertilizers and pesticides for his land.


Hector Urbano's story

Héctor is a 34 year-old father of three. He lives together with his wife in their home which is located in Pitipo district, in Ferreñafe province. This is known as an agricultural area which is inhabited by entrepreneurial people who identify with the local saying "Ferreñafe is the city of two faiths".

Héctor has more than six years experience in managing his land well. He grows hard yellow corn.

Héctor is requesting a loan for 3,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa which he will use to look after his two hectares of hard yellow corn. He will buy fertilizers, pesticides and other products so that he can obtain a higher per-hectare yield. This will allow him to expand his business and make more profits for the well-being of his three children.

Héctor has a good reputation with Edpyme Alternativa as he has had three previous loans which he repaid punctually and responsibly.
