A loan of $750 helped to purchase compost for his land.


Luis Alberto's story

Luis Alberto is 28 years old and lives in his own home with his wife and children. The only service he receives is electricity. Luis resides in the rural section of the District of Pomahuaca, which is part of the Department of Cajamarca. This area is known for having businesses that involve agriculture, livestock breeding, and tourism.


Luis Alberto is a farmer and has his own land on which he grows coffee and passion fruit. He has been farming for many years and his products are widely consumed. Once his crops are harvested, they are sold at different markets within and outside of the area. The income he generates enables him to provide a better quality of life for his wife and children.


Noticing that his business needs to grow, Luis Alberto is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 2000 PEN in order to buy compost to improve his land and help his cattle. With the revenue he generates, Luis will be able to repay the loan and meet the daily needs of his family. Through work and dedication, Luis Alberto will supply the best for his children and intends to provide them with other academic opportunities in the near future.
