Jose Santos's story

José Santos is 27 years old and lives with his wife in the settlement of Huacapampa, a rural community in the district of Cañarís whose inhabitants work in farming, sales and livestock. It is located in the province of Ferreñafe which belongs to the Lambayeque area of the northern coast of Peru.

José has been a farmer for the past 10 years. He grows coffee. He's an enterprising father who works hard alongside his family. He has requested 3,000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa in order to purchase compost so he can maintain his coffee crop. That way he'll obtain a better produce to offer his customers, earning a higher income for his family.
