Alejandro's story

Alejandro is 60 years old. He is a hardworking man. He lives with his wife Primitiva and their children in the house he bought 16 years ago. Alejandro is a farmer and he buys and sells animals. He has been doing these activities for more than 30 years. He works very hard with his animals, among them sheep and cows. He cares for them with much dedication and patience, since the meat they produce depends a lot on it. He sells the meat in the market to his regular customers. But farming is the way he saves money. He says that he plants on large plots of land located in a fertile area 2 hours away. His corn, potatoes and other crops bring him good income. He sells them at a good price, drying the corn. Now he wants to improve his crops because it will be May soon and during that month the prices go up.

Alejandro will invest S/.3,000 soles to buy organic fertilizer to feed his crops. He is committed to making his payments on time.
