A loan of $550 helped buy balanced feed for his sheep and fertilizer for his crops.


Jose Luis's story

Luis is 44 years old, married, and lives with his wife and 5 children in the village of San Pedrillo, located in the district of Tambogrande – Piura. This is a small and rural community that does not have many basic services. Despite this, it is full of people that thrive and work hard. Luis dedicates himself to raising sheep, and currently has 38 of them. He has 9 years of experience in this line of work. In addition, he is a farmer and has land where he plants lemons and mangoes, both fruit trees in production and well managed. He carries out complementary work as a laborer on a 30-hectare mango farm located in the village. Luis knows a lot about both activities, which is why he has a steady customer base that prefers his services and products. Luis requests a loan of 1500 new Peruvian soles through Edpyme Alternativa to buy balanced feed for his 38 sheep, and for fertilizer for his mango and lemon crops. Luis is a customer known to Edpyme Alternativa, as this is his second loan. He paid off the first loan punctually and responsibly.
