A loan of $375 helped buy fertilizers to improve his agricultural fields and their produce.


Alex Junior's story

Alex is 24 years old, single, and lives in his grandparents' house, which lacks basic services. It is located in the rural zone of Sullana district, Piura department. This area is characterized by agricultural, cattle-raising and artisan activity.

Alex is involved in agriculture. He has his own cultivable fields where he plants lemon and mango trees. After harvest, he sells his crops in different markets in Piura and thus obtains income to cover his personal expenses.

Alex has requested a loan through Edpyme Alternativa for 1,000 new sols to buy fertilizers to improve his fields as well as his crops, so that he can offer them at a better price to merchants and make economic improvements. Alex is a young worker who with effort desires to advance and continue helping his grandparents economically and, together, they can get ahead.
