A loan helped purchase manure to care for his lime and grain crops.


Isidro's story

Isidro is 63 years old. He is in a civil union and has two children who depend on him. They live in the Chafan village in the rural zone of San Felipe. The people of San Felipe work in agriculture, specifically growing fruits, selling fruit and raising cattle. It is located in the Jaén province in the Cajamarca region of Peru's northern sierra.

Isidro works growing limes. He has farms where he grows his limes, which he sells in the city of Chiclayo. He has over 20 years of experience in this field.

He is seeking a loan of 1,000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa to purchase manure to care for his lime and grain crops. This will allow him to generate greater earnings for his family.
