A loan of $375 helped to buy organic manure.


Crimaldo's story

Crimaldo, 39, is married with five children but only three of them still live at home with him. The activity Crimaldo does is agriculture and to do so he leases a hectare where he lives. It’s currently entirely planted with bananas and he sells his products in the main local market or in various street markets organized by his local municipality. His wife helps him do the planting and crop maintenance chores until harvest and selling of products.

He likes working in the open because of the pure air he gets from the environment and he also feels satisfied with the income his work generates because it’s useful to pay basic expenses at home and for his children’s education although he would like to earn more. He plans to expand the business and go into a new project planting cocoa beans because of the current boom this product is having locally.

On this occasion he will request 1,000 soles and he’s grateful for the opportunity he’s being given to access the loan he needs in order to continue reaching his goals. He will use the amount requested to buy organic manure for his banana crop.
