Jose Celedonio's story

José Celedonio is 58 years old, he lives in his own home of solid construction in the district of Morropon, a community based on agriculture, commerce and cattle ranching. Morropon is located in the province of the same name which belongs to the Piura region on the north coast of Peru.

José has been selling watermelons for four years. He works out of his house and has many customers in the area. Due to the excessive heat where he lives, José has discovered an opportunity to sell other juicy fruits as well, which quench the thirst of his customers.

He has asked for a loan from Edpyme Alternativa of 2,000 nuevos soles to buy a larger quantity of fruit to sell to his customers.
