Pedro
Pedro, 57, is a married head of household that lives with his wife and six children in the El Morante farmstead, Olmos district which is three and a half hours away from the city of Chiclayo. Four of his children are students in a local school. For more than 23 years he has raised pigs and sheep which he sells to buyers that visit his farm frequently. This activity produces his only source of income with which he meets household expenses. Pedro has thought to improve his pigs' nutrition so that he can sell them sooner. For this reason he is asking Edpyme Alternativa for his first, 1,000 sol, loan which will be used to buy nutritionally balanced feed. His greatest wish is to make improvements to his home which is built with rudimentary materials and to replace the metal sheets, that are used for shade, which are very deteriorated. He is an exemplary and responsible father.

Pedro ha pensado en mejorar la alimentación de los cerdos que cría para lograr su venta con mayor rapidez. Por este motivo está solicitando por primera vez a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 1000 nuevos soles que piensa invertir en la compra de alimentos balanceados.

Su más grande sueño es hacer mejoras en su casa que está construida de material rústico y cambiar las calaminas que le sirven de sombra ya que están deterioradas. El es un padre ejemplar y responsable.
