María Amelia's story

Maria is 41 years old and she lives together with her husband and family in Tambogrande, in the region of Piura. It is located 4 hours from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the department of Lambayeque.

She has a small store installed in her home. She is able to tend to her customers in a very kind manner, all of whom have remained steady clients. Maria's goal is to come out ahead. She sells cosmetics which she acquires from a distributor. And with the help of her husband she also raises pigs and sheep. She fattens them and once they have developed she sells them to her neighbors and to the merchants who visit the region where they live.

Maria wishes to acquire more feed to fatten her livestock, to sell and to obtain improve earnings for her family. She has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) in the amount of 1700 nuevos soles in order to meet her objective.
