Marcelino's story

Marcelino is a 32 year old husband and father. He lives with his family in the district of Morropón, a district dedicated mainly to growing fruit, which is processed for export to other countries. It belongs to the province of Piura, in the region of the same name, located more than three hours from the city of Chiclayo.

He raises and sells animals. He raises farm animals and small animals behind his house, and when they have reached a good size he offer them for sale to the merchants who visit the area frequently. This activity provides a stable source of income which gets his young family ahead. In addition, he grows cotton, on 1.0 hectares of cropland. He is putting his efforts into this land, because he wants to sell the crop later.

Marcelino wants for his crop to have a good yield. That is why he works very hard to attain his goals. Right now he wants to adquire fertilizer and pesticides to maintain his crop and help himself. He has decided to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 2000 nuevos soles.
