A loan of $575 helped to purchase fertilizers and clear his land.

David's story

David is 31 years old and lives with his fiancée and 2-year-old son in a house that lacks the basic services of lights, water, and sewer, in the settlement of El Porvenir [The Future] Hualtaco III, located some 6 kilometers from Tambogrande district, in Piura.

David and his fiancée are a hard-working couple. She raises cattle and pigs and David is a farmer. At present, they have plantings of mango and lemon on land they inherited from their parents. David harvests the lemons each 15 days and this brings good earnings. This entrepreneurial couple have been dedicated to these activities for the last 2 years, due to the birth of their son.

David is requesting a loan of 1,500 new sols through Edpyme Alternativa. The money will be used to buy fertilizers and to clear land, in order to promote good production of mangoes and lemons. This will increase David's inventories and, in the end, his sales, assuring that production continues to grow.

This family has much desire to get ahead.
