Carlos Emilio's story

Carlos is a 68-year-old gentleman who is happily married. He and his wife live in the village of Monteverde Bajo, which is located in the District of Tambogrande-Piura. This community is in poor condition. Carlos lives in the rural section of the district. He does not receive basic services such as electricity, running water, and drainage.

Carlos is a farmer and has land on which he grows mostly mangos. He has been producing this fruit for eight years. In addition, he grows lemons that are harvested on a weekly basis. To complement his crop cultivation, Carlos raises sheep that are eventually sold at the local market. He has 15 years of experience in these farming activities. Carlos is known for perfecting his methods so that he can achieve good results. His products have a permanent market.

Carlos is requesting a loan from Edpyme Altnerativa in the amount of 1000 PEN. He wants to invest in the purchase of fertilizers and agricultural chemicals for his mango and lemon crops. This will enable him to stay on track for an optimal harvest. As a result, he will be able to improve his income and achieve a better quality of life for himself and his wife.

Carlos presents good personal references and an excellent credit history.
