Rogelio's story

Rogelio is a 53 year old father who lives with his wife and son in their own house that doesn't have basic services. They live in the Tambogrande district in the department of Piura. The residents in this district work in agriculture, ranching and crafts.

Rogelio has worked in agriculture for some time. He has his own land where he grows lemons and mangoes. After harvesting he sells his products in the markets in his area. He also raises sheep and poultry. The pens are located in the back part of his house. He feeds them natural grains and grasses and when they reach the optimal size he sells them to his customers.

He has requested a loan of 3000 nuevos soles through Edpyme Alternative to purchase fertilizers to amend the soil and ensure that he will have a good lemon production. It will also pay for the labor to weed and prune his trees with the intent of improving production. Rogelio is a responsible and hard-working person and the only thing that he wants is to give his family a better quality of life.
