A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase fertilizer to maintain his rice crop.

Agapito's story

Agapito is 43 years old. He lives with his partner and their four children in the village of San Lorenzo, a rural community in the district of Pucará, where the climate is warm and the population works in agriculture, trade and animal husbandry, and which is located in the province of Jaén, part of the Cajamarca region, in the northern mountains of Perú.

He works in agriculture and selling a variety of fruits. He is an enterprising father who works hard with his family to have a better quality of life and has planted a rice field.

He has asked Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 3,000 nuevos soles to purchase fertilizer for his rice crop and in this way have a better product to offer his customers and generate more income for his family.
