Ramon's story

Ramón is a 34-year-old father who lives with his wife and children in their own home. The only service he receives is electricity. He resides in the District of Tambogrande, which is part of the Department of Piura. This area is known for its people who engage in businesses involving farming, livestock breeding, and making handicrafts.

Ramón has been a farmer for several years. He has his own farmland on which he grows lemons. The fruit is harvested weekly and then sold to different markets in the area. This product is widely consumed since it is part of the daily diet of all the local residents. With the income he generates from the sale of his lemons, Ramón has been able to improve the quality of life for his entire family.

He is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1000 PEN in order to buy fertilizers to apply on his farmland so that he can obtain a good crop of lemons. This will allow him to repay the loan, increase his earnings, and provide for the needs of his wife and children.

Ramón is known locally as a responsible and hardworking man. He strives to meet the demands of his job so that he can move his family forward.
