Santos
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.

Santos es una madre de familia de 58 años de edad que reside junto a su esposo y a sus tres hijos en el sector Pueblo Libre del distrito de Tambogrande, una zona agrícola que pertenece a la provincia de Piura y que se encuentra ubicada en la región del mismo nombre, a más de tres horas y media de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Se dedica a la crianza de ganado vacuno lechero para comercializar la leche que producen. Ella cría sus animales en un área de terreno cercano a su vivienda y los alimenta de pastos naturales. La leche es vendida a sus vecinos y a un acopiador de la zona. Este negocio actualmente constituye su unico ingreso familiar ya que su esposo se encuentra enfermo de la columna y no puede trabajar. En todo momento ella es ayudada por sus hijos.

Santos desea ampliar su negocio adquiriendo alimento balanceado para mejorar la producción de sus animales, por ello se ha visto en la necesidad de solicitar por primera vez a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 1000 nuevos soles con los cuales piensa sacar adelante su negocio y lograr su meta.

Ella es una mujer luchadora y que se esfuerza a diario para sacar adelante a su familia. Su mayor anhelo es ver a su esposo sano. En la imagen aparece junto a dos de sus hijos.
