A loan of $375 helped to buy fertilizer to maintain his fields and to plant a new lemon plantation.

Jose Alberto's story

José, who is 41 years old, is married and lives with his family in his own house, which has electrical service and is located in the rural zone of Tambogrande, which belongs to the department of Piura. It is a district with agriculture, livestock-raising, and handicrafts.

He has some farmland where he usually plants lemon trees. He has several years of experience in this business and during this time he has learned a lot about the management of crops. He also raises and sells poultry. He uses the income that he receives from these activities to pay the daily expenses of his family.

José wants to buy fertilizers and maintain his land so that he can plant a new lemon plantation. In this way he will obtain a better harvest. To achieve his objective, he has seen the need to apply to Edpyme Alternative for a loan of 1000 PEN.
