A loan of $1,100 helped to buy fertilizer and pesticide.

Humberto's story

Humberto, 38, lives with his wife in his own house which does not have basic utilities (water, electricity and sewage) located in Mórrope District which belongs to Lambayeque Department. This zone is noted because its residents are farmers, raise livestock and are craftsmen.

Humberto has been farming for several years. He has his own fields where he grows “chileno” (a type of bean), a product that is consumed quite widely as part of local residents’ daily meals. Income from chileno sales will improve his quality of life.

He has asked Edpyme Alternativa for a 3000 new sol loan to buy fertilizer and pesticide for his crops to insure a good yield of chileno to be able to repay the loan and increase his income to give his wife everything she needs.

Humberto is a responsible, hard working man. All the effort his work demands is aimed at getting ahead.
