Maria Elizabeth
María is 30 years old and single. She lives in her parents' home with her sister and a cousin in a rural area of Reque district which is located twenty minutes from the city of Chiclayo, in the north of Peru. Her community doesn't have access to drinking water or electricty.

María's business is raising livestock such as ducks, chickens and turkeys. She raises these animals on a plot of land belonging to her father which is located near her home. She feeds them natural fodder. When her animals have reached a good level of development, she offers them for sale to the traders who visit her area. She also sells to her neighbors.

María has more than 15 years experience in this line of work. She would like to invest her loan in buying young calves to fatten and sell. For this reason, she has requested a loan for 1,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa. María will use her income to continue supporting her parents with their family expenses.

María tiene 30 años de edad y es soltera. Vive en casa de sus padres con su hermana y una prima en la parte rural del distrito de Reque, una zona ubicada a veinte minutos de la ciudad de Chiclayo, en el norte de Perú. Su comunidad no cuenta con agua potable ni energía eléctrica.

María se dedica a la crianza de animales como patos, pollos, y pavos. Ella cría estos animales en el terreno de su padre ubicado cerca a su domicilio y los alimenta de pastos naturales. Cuando estos ya han alcanzado un buen nivel de desarrollo los ofrece en venta a los negociantes que visitan la zona y a sus propios vecinos. Tiene más de 15 años de experiencia en este rubro. Desea invertir su crédito en la compra de terneros pequeños para engordarlos y venderlos. Por ello, ha creído conveniente solicitar a Edpyme Alternativa un préstamo de 1000 nuevos soles. Con sus ingresos, María puede seguir apoyando a sus padres con los gastos familiares.
