Rodolfo's story

Rodolfo is a young entrepreneur, 28 years old, single and without children. Currently he is living in his parent’s house, which is located in a rural settlement where the inhabitants engage exclusively in agriculture and cattle raising. As of now, the village is in the process of development and has only electricity. The settlement is called “Ayar Uchu” and it belongs to Tambogrande District in Piura Province.

Rodolfo has an agricultural plot which was given him by his father. There he currently plants lemons. At the rear of his house he raises cattle and after they reach an ideal size and weight he takes them to local markets. As well Rodolfo has a small vehicle in which he provides transportation services all over the area where he lives. In this way he generates an income to take care of his obligations.

He wants to improve his quality of life, as well as that of his parents, and is always looking for new opportunities to generate more income. Now he has decided to request a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 3,000 nueveos soles . He will use it to purchase fertilizer for his farm and feed to fatten his cattle.

Despite being a young man, he has responsibly assumed the responsibility of helping his parents improve their quality of life.
