A loan of $550 helped to buy fertilizer to maintain his crops.


Pedro's story

Pedro is 52 years old, and lives with his wife in the San Felipe district, a community located on the Belaunde Terry highway, 2 hours away from Jaén on the north coast of Peru. This has allowed the population to find work selling prepared food to travelers passing through the area, growing and selling fruit.

Pedro has worked growing and selling limes for several years, and has a considerable clientele in the area. He is asking for a loan of 1500 nuevos soles to buy fertilizers. This will improve the quality of his lime crops and he will be able to offer them at a better price, increasing his income for his family.
