A loan of $300 helped to buy fertilizers to improve his farm land and his crops.

Brisimi's story

Brisimi is a 36 year old father who lives with his wife and children in his own home, in Reque district, a short distance from Chiclayo province. This is a district which is noted for the fact that its residents work in farming and livestock raising.

Brisimi has been farming for five years. He works on his land where he would like to start sowing beans which are a good, healthy food that is eaten daily by local people. When he harvests his beans he sells them in the different markets in his area.

Brisimi has requested a loan for 800 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa to buy fertilizers so that he can improve his land and obtain a better harvest of beans. Once he harvests his crops, he will be able to repay his loan and have some improvements for his household. Brisimi is known as a hard-working, responsible person and, in common with all fathers, he would like his family to do well.
