A loan of $375 helped to purchase livestock feed.

Santos's story

Santos is a mother, she is 58 years old and she lives together with her husband and their three children in the Pueblo Libre sector of the district of Tambogrande. It is a primarily agricultural region located in the Province of Piura. It is more than three and a half hours from the city of Chiclayo.

She raises milk cows and she sells the milk they produce. She keeps her livestock in a piece of land near her home and she feeds them natural grasses. She sells milk to her neighbors and to a distributor in the region. This business is the only source of income for the family because her husband has a bad back and he is unable to work. She always gets help from her children.

Santos wishes to expand her business and to this end she requires balanced feed to improve milk production. She requests a first time loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) in the amount of 1000 nuevos soles. With this loan she will be able to develop her business and reach her goal.

She is a very hard working person and she works every day to support her family. Her greatest dream is to see her husband healthy. She is photographed here together with two of her children.
