Basilides's story

Basilides is 68 years old. He is a married man that lives in the rural area of San Nicolás - Lambayeque where the primary business is agriculture and raising livestock.

In spite of his age, Basilides has to provide for his household. Because of this he has been selling vegetables in the Lambayeque market for a year. He enjoys a well established customer base because he is known for his high quality products. He also raises and sells poultry (ducks, turkeys) and works in agriculture, such as harvesting lemons.

Basilides is requesting a loan through Edpyme Alternativa for 1000 nuevos soles [Peruvian currency]. He will use it to purchase merchandise (vegetables) and to cover other personal expenses.
