Reydo's story

Reydo, 43 years old, is married to Ana, with whom he has three children: Fermín, Mariluz, and Jackelyn. They live in a rustic house that Reydo built with the help of some family members. Their house is located in a farming district.

Reydo has made a living farming since he was a boy. He used to help his parents cultivate their land, an experience is is thankful to have had. Reydo takes care of his potato, corn, peas, and gladiola flowers. He is very happy growing these crops alongside his wife. They also take care of animals that help them work their land.

"This month, I am gathering gladiola flowers. The market price is good because of the upcoming religious festivals," he says. Reydo plans to start two more crops, one of peas and one of corn, in order to take advantage of the coming rainy season.

Reydo is requesting this loan in order to achieve his goals. He will invest the 2500 soles to buy organic fertilizer for his plants. Reydo pledges to make all his repayments punctually.
