Victor Manuel's story

Victor is a 39-year-old father who lives in his own home with his wife and children. He does not receive any basic services. Victor resides in the District of Tambogrande, which is part of the Department of Piura. This district is known for the businesses of its residents who engage in agriculture, livestock breeding, and producing handicrafts.

Victor has been farming for some time. He has his own land on which he grows lemons. When the fruits are ready to be harvested, he sells them at the local market. This type of product is very profitable because it can be harvested on a weekly basis. Through his sales, Victor is able to provide his family a better quality of life.

He is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1500 PEN so that he can buy fertilizers to apply on his farmland, which will guarantee a good level of lemon production. In addition, he will be able to pay workers to help with the removal of weeds. Victor is a responsible and hardworking individual. The only thing he wants is to provide his family with a better quality of life.
