Santos
Santos is a 53 year old father who lives with his wife and children in the Pomape sector of the Monsefú district, an area known at the regional level for its ceramic, wood and fabric handicrafts.

For over twenty years he has raised and sold sheep. He raises sheep in an area near his home and grazes them on natural pasture. When they are well developed, he sells them to his neighbors or sales people who frequent the area where he lives. This is his family's main source of income. He also works in agriculture.

Santos would like to buy feed for his animals, since in this season the feed is scarce and expensive. For this reason, he has chosen to request a loan for the first time from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1000 new soles, which he will use to continue feeding his sheep.

He is a very tranquil and responsible person. His greatest desire is to continue growing as a business owner in order to provide his family with a better quality of life.
