A loan of $200 helped purchase manure to care for his corn crops.

Osbaldo's story

Osbaldo is 60 years old and lives with his wife in the El Frayle hamlet in the Distrito Santo Tomas. He has good relationships with the members of his community. He lives in a small community that is essentially devoted to agriculture. He lives in his own home made of rustic materials, located in the Cutervo province, which is in the Cajamarca region in Peru's northern Sierra. He works in agriculture, specifically growing creole, hard, yellow corn. He has cultivated two hectares on his land. He also has two cows that his wife helps milk to later sell in the form of cheese and fresh milk.

He has requested a loan of 500 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa to purchase manure to care for his corn crops.
