Mercedes
Mercedes is 55 years old, married and lives with his wife and two children in the Las Juntas settlement, in the Pacora district, one hour away from the city of Chiclayo.

He has worked raising and selling animals for the last 5 years. He tells us that he had to begin this type of work because the income he was earning as a farm worker was not sufficient to cover his family's expenses. His work consists of raising small animals (preferably goats) to then market them to the businesspeople who frequent the area where he lives.

Mercedes would like to expand his business by buying more animals and continuing to sell them. That is why he find himself, for the first time, requesting a loan of 1500 soles from Edpyme Alternativa, which he wants to use to achieve his goal.

He is a very well-known and respected man in the area where he lives. His neighbors consider him an honest and hard-working man and his greatest desire is to continue having the energy to move his family ahead.
