Jose Asuncion's story

José is 47 and lives with his family in Tambogrande, Piura. This region is known for its agriculture, cattle and handcrafts. Jose has been a farmer for 6 years, and grows lemons on his lands, harvesting them every week for sale in local markets with good profits. He now seeks a credit of 2,600 soles from Edpyme Alternativa to buy fertilizers to increase crop production and increase his profits. Jose is dedicated to his family and hopes to provide his children with a prosperous academic future.
