A loan of $375 helped to buy fertilizer to improve his soil and his harvests.


Juan Evangelista's story

Juan is 41 years old and lives with his family in his own house, which has only electricity. He lives in a rural area of the district of San Felipe in the province of Cajamarca. This area is known for agriculture, livestock, arts and crafts, and tourism.

Juan’s business is agriculture, and he has his own land where he grows lime trees. He harvests his limes and sells them to different markets in the area in which he lives, thus making income to cover his household expenses.

He is seeking a loan from Edpyme Alternativa of 1,000 nuevos soles in order to buy fertilizer to improve his soil and his harvests, with the goal of offering a better price to his customers, thereby improving his income. He is a father who wants to make certain that his children have a promising future, which will bring him much happiness.
