Rosa
Rosa is a 59-year-old homemaker who lives with her husband and the family of one of her seven children in the hamlet of Los Bances, in the Pacora district, located 90 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

She raises and sells animals; she tells us that she started her business because her husband's job, in agriculture, did not give her enough to maintain the ongoing basic family needs.

Rosa raises sheep and fowl (ducks, chickens, turkeys) and she sells them to the merchants who visit the area every three months. The money she makes helps with her family's daily expenses. The raising of ducks has increased considerably, but Rosa does not have enough resources to feed the birds well. Thus, she has requested her first loan of PEN 1000 to Kiva partner Edpyme Alternativa with which she will buy balanced feed.

Rosa dreams to be able to fix her home since the rainy season is approaching and her house always suffers considerable damage from the bad weather. She's optimistic, hard-working, and very entrepreneurial.

Rosa es una madre de familia de 59 años de edad que vive junto a su esposo y a la famila de uno de sus siete hijos en el caserío Los Bances, distrito de Pacora, ubicado a una hora y treinta minutos de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Se dedica a la crianza y venta de animales desde que formó su hogar, ella nos cuenta que empezó su negocio debido a que el trabajo de su esposo, la agricultura, no le brindaba los recursos permanentes que necesitaba para sostener a su familia.

Ella cría ovejas y aves de corral (patos, pollos, pavos) y las vende a los negociantes que frecuentan la zona cada tres meses. Los ingresos que percibe ayudan a solventar los gastos diarios de su familia. Su cría de patos ha aumentado considerablemente pero Rosa no tiene los recursos suficientes para alimentarlos por lo que se ha visto en la necesidad de solicitar por primera vez a Edpyme Alternativa un préstamo de 1000 nuevos soles que piensa utilizar en la compra de alimento balanceado.

Su sueño es poder arreglar su casa, ya que la temporada de lluvias se acerca y su casa siempre sufre considerables daños. Ella es una mujer optimista, trabajadora y muy empeñosa.
