A loan of $575 helped to buy fertilizer and do crop pruning and weeding.

Eliseo's story

Eliseo, 34, is a father who lives with his wife and two children in the hamlet of Manco Inca in the rural area of the district of Tambogrande, in the Piura region.

He works in agriculture-related jobs. On the one hand he raises sheep, pigs, and poultry, which he raises, fattens, and sells in the local market. He also has one hectare of farmland growing lemon, which he harvests weekly. His wife raises poultry and helps him in his activities.

Eliseo wants to get fertilizer for his lemon crop and also do crop pruning and weeding, which will allow him to have a better crop and, consequently, continue to grow and improve his living conditions. To finance these activities he has asked Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1500 nuevos soles [PEN].

Eliseo thanks in advance the people who will support him with his loan.
