A loan of $1,150 helped to buy manure and fertilizer to maintain his plants at a good level of production.

Clemente's story

Clemente is 38 years old. He lives in his own house, which is made of wood. He bought it with his wife, Rosa, who is 38 years old. They have three children, whom they want to provide with a better quality of life.

Ten years ago they bought their own farm land. They produce cacao, which is now in full production. At harvest time, they count on help from hired workers. Then they take their sacks of cacao to collection centers in their town, which is difficult because they are very heavy. In the future, Clemente wants to buy a cargo motorcycle. In order to do this, he puts in a lot of effort to have a good harvest every time.

This is his 6th loan with Microfinanzas Prisma and he is grateful for the support it has provided him, since he will be able to achieve his goals. He is an active and responsible member of his communal bank.

With the loan of PEN 3,000.00 (nuevos soles), he will buy manure and fertilizers to maintain his plants at a good level of production.
