A loan of $1,700 helped to buy farmland on which to sow lemons.

Rene's story

Rene is 24 years old, single, and doesn't have any children. He lives in Tambogrande, in the rural part of this district, in the north of Peru.

Rene's business is raising pigs and farmyard birds. He also farms. He has 2.0 hectares of farmland where he grows lemons which he harvests every week. He works on this land every day. He has been in his business for more than eight years.

Rene will invest his loan in buying 0.5 hectares of farmland so that he can grow more lemons and thereby continue growing in his business. Rene has received a previous loan from Edpyme Alternativa and showed himself to be a responsible client.
