Andres Enrique's story

Andrés is 60 years old, single, with no children. He lives in his own home with his brother and his family. This house is located in the small village of La Pala belonging to the district of Tambogrande. He lives in the rural part of the district, but has electric service.

Andrés works in agriculture, and has 3.28 hectares, of which 1 is mango and 1/2 hectare is lemon. Both crops are well managed and in production. He has more than 20 years experience in agriculture.

Additionally he raises small livestock which upon reaching ideal weight and size he sells in the local market. The income he receives from these activities helps with the household expenses.

Andrés has asked for a loan of 1000 soles from Edpyme Alternative. The loan will be used for the purchase of fertilizer for the cultivation of mango.
