A loan of $375 helped to buy fertilizer and feed for his livestock.

Yefer's story

Yefer is a 31 year old man who has two children in his care. He lives with his children and his wife in a hamlet in Tambogrande District – Piura Department. Sadly, Yafer’s house does not have basic utilities like electricity, water and sewage.

For over four years Yafer has been farming and raising livestock. He has a one hectare field planted with lemons that he harvests weekly. He’s also raising 15 sheep.

Yafer is asking Edpyme Alternativa for a 1000 new sol loan that he’ll use to buy fertilizer for his lemon crops and to carry out tasks like pruning and weeding. Another part of the loan will be used to buy sheep feed that will improve their quality and allow Yafer to sell them at a better price for his business’ benefit.

Yafer plans to use profits from his business to improve his family’s quality of life which is currently very poor.
