Simon's story

Simon, 67, lives with a partner and has a child. He resides in northern Peru, where the only utility he has is electricity. Simon is a farmer who has 4 hectares of agricultural land that is planted with limes, which he harvests weekly. He also raises livestock such as sheep and pigs. He has been doing this work for more than 12 years, and his partner supports him in these activities.

He is planning on investing this loan in the purchase of fertilizers for his lime crops, and also to clear some of his land, which will allow him to increase his production and improve his quality of life. Simon is a repeat client, and he has demonstrated himself to be very responsible with his payments.
