A loan of $750 helped to buy fertilizer and animal feed.

Cristhian Marlo's story

Cristhian, 26, lives with his wife and son in his own house that only has electricity and is located in the rural part of Tambogrande District that belongs to Piura Department. This zone is noted for farming, livestock raising and crafts making.

Cristhian is a farmer. He has his own fields where he grows corn, an activity he’s been doing for some years now since it’s a product that’s consumed daily by people. Once harvest is in he sells it in various markets in the zone and some outside of it as well. With income acquired he can provide a better quality of life for his son and wife. He also raises small farm animals that provide another source of household income.

Noting that the business is growing he felt it necessary to request a 2000 new sol loan from Edpyme Alternativa to buy fertilizer to improve his land and his crops and to buy nutritionally balanced animal feed. With profits obtained he will be able to repay the loan and meet his family’s daily needs. With work and dedication Cristhian provides the best for his son with the goal in mind of offering him an academic opportunity in the future.
