Albertina
Albertina is 45 years old and single. She lives alone in the small community of Lagunas, a rural area in the district of Mórrope, in Lambayeque province. The area is located one hour and fifteen minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

For more than 20 years she has made a living raising and selling small animals, which has given her the means that she needs to live. She raises poultry in some pens that are situated behind her home. When the birds have grown to a good size she sells them to businesspeople in the area; they in turn resell the birds at the wholesale market in the city of Chiclayo.

This activity also allows Albertina to stay active, since she lives alone, though her closest neighbors are her relatives, and all of them support each other. Her relatives are encouraging her to expand her business by purchasing some small birds and balanced feed so that they can grow properly; that way she will be able to earn more profits and get ahead little by little. That is the reason why Albertina is asking for her first loan from Kiva partner Edpyme Alternativa—a loan of 1000 soles that will help her to achieve her goal.

Albertina is a hard-working woman who really likes to feel useful and to help others; in the community where she lives she is known to be an easygoing and responsible woman. Her greatest desire is to make some more improvements to her home using basic materials, since the recent rains have caused structural damage to her home.

Se dedica desde hace mas de 20 años a la crianza y comercalización de animales menores para obtener los recursos que necesita para mantenerse. Ella cría aves de corral en unos corrales ubicados en la parte posterior de su vivienda. Cuando estas ya han alcanzado un buen punto de desarrollo las ofrece a venta a los negociantes de la zona que a su vez los revenden en el mercado mayorista de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Esta actividad le permite también sentirse activa, a pesar de que vive sola, las viviendas cercanas son habitadas por sus familiares, entre ellos se apoyan mutuamente. Precisamente sus familiares le están animando a ampliar su negocio con la compra de algunas aves pequeñas y de alimento balanceado para su correcto desarrollo, de modo que ella pueda percibir mas ganancias y salir adelante poco a poco, por este motivo ella se encuentra solicitando por primera vez a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 1000 nuevos soles que le ayuden a lograr su objetivo.

Albertina es una mujer trabajadora y empeñosa, ella gusta mucho de sentirse útil y ayudar a los demas; en la comunidad donde vive sus conocidos le consideran una mujer tranquila y de confianza. Su mayor anhelo es hacer algunas mejoras en su vivienda de material rústico, ya que las pasadas lluvias han hecho algunos daños en su estructura.
