A loan of $750 helped to buy fertilizers for his lemon crop and to buy feed for his sheep.

Nestor Julio's story

Néstor is 59 years old. He is single and lives together with his mother in a small village in the agricultural district of Tambogrande, in Piura province, in the region of the same name, more than three and a half hours from the city of Chiclayo. This area is known for its fruit production (mangos and lemons) and for the fact that most of its residents enjoy a fairly precarious quality of life.

Néstor farms in order to earn a living. He has a small plot of land where he grows lemons. He harvest these and sells them to processing plants in his area. He also has sheep which he raises and then sells in the market in his district. He uses the income that he makes from this business to get ahead in life and provide his mother with a better quality of life.

Néstor would like to maintain his crops and enjoy a good production. He has requested a loan for 2,000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa in order to invest in buying fertilizers for his crops and feed for his sheep.

Néstor's previous Kiva loan had positive results. For this reason, he is grateful to the people who are cooperating in providing his loan. He thanks his lenders in advance.
