A loan of $1,475 helped buy organic fertilizer.


Pedro's story

Pedro, is 50 years old, married to Ceferina (his partner and mother of his children even though he currently lives with Alcides, who is 24 years old, in a home they built many years back, located in an agricultural area.)
Pedro is a responsible and hardworking man. He has liked working in the fields since he was young which is why he is still dedicated to it now. "I plant potatoes, corn, peas, beans, gladioli flowers, etc. I grow all sorts of things here," he proudly mentions. In his more than 25 years of work he has gained much satisfaction and frustrations, but he assures that all of his experiences have helped him grow as an entrepreneur. He says the crops are very profitable. He just needs to cultivate them during certain months to harvest when prices are best. He now has his own land as before he had to rent it. His next plans include growing peas and corn which is why he is requesting a loan. Pedro will use the 3800 Peruvian soles loan to buy organic fertilizer to nourish his crops.
