Elmer's story

Elmer, 30 years old, in a common-law marriage, lives in his own home along with his spouse and youngest child in the Cañaris District, Ferreñafe Province, and Lambayeque Department, Peru. Elmer can count on many good personal and work references from the inhabitants of the area. The inhabitants of this town mainly make a living from agriculture, commerce, and livestock.

Elmer makes a living from agriculture, specifically the cultivation of coffee, with experience in the business for 10 years. He is requesting a loan to purchase fertilizers and to invest in the maintenance of his farm. Thus, he will get higher yields.

Elmer is a recurrent associate of Edpyme Alternativa. He has managed a variety of loans, which he has paid off punctually.
