Jose Rosendo's story

José Rosendo is 48 years old and he lives together with his wife and kids in the district of Callayuc. This community has a cool climate and its people make a living in agriculture, trade, and livestock. It is located in the Cutervo province, which belongs to the Cajamarca region in the northern mountains of Peru.

The borrower makes a living in agriculture, specifically in cultivating coffee. His wife supports him in this work; she prepares the food and meals that they offer the day laborers who help with the coffee crops.

He has requested this loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 3,000 soles. He will buy compost, humus, and other items in order to fertilizer his crops. In doing this, he will have a good production to offer his customers.
