Maria Carmela
María lives in the Yonan district, located within the Contumaza province in northern Peru. She is 35 years old, single, and has two children, ages 13 and 14. She lives with her family in the rural part of the district. María earns her living selling hogs and corral birds, like turkeys, ducks, and chickens, which she raises on a small plot of land near her home. When they have reached a good size and weight, she sells them at the local market. She also earns additional income working on other farms in her zone.

She would like to expand her business by buying balanced feed and more animals to fatten up, so she has seen fit to request a 1,200 PEN loan. This investment will help increase her income. She is very responsible and hard working. She has had a previous loan through Edpyme Alternativa and repaid it on schedule. Her greatest desire is to continue growing her business to be able to improve her home and offer a better quality of life for her children.

María vive en el distrito de Yonan ubicado en la provincia de Contumaza en el norte de Perú. Tiene 35 años de edad, es soltera y tiene 2 hijos de 13 y 14 años de edad. Vive junto a su familia en la zona rural de su distrito. Gana la vida criando y vendiendo chanchos y aves de corral como pavos, patos y gallina. Ella cria los animales en un pequeño terreno cerca de su casa. Cuando estos ya han alcanzado un buen tamaño y peso, los vende en el mercado local. Además, genera ingresos adicionales trabajando como jornalera en las chacras en su zona. Desea ampliar su negocio y invertir su préstamo en la compra de más animales para engorde y alimento balanceado. Por ello, ha creído conveniente solicitar a Edpyme Alternativa un préstamo de 1200 nuevos soles. Esta inversión la ayudará aumentar sus ingresos. María es muy trabajadora y responsable. Ha manejado otro préstamo de Edpyme Alternativa y lo canceló de manera puntual. Su mayor anhelo es seguir creciendo su negocio para poder mejorar su domicilio y ofrecerles a sus hijos una mejor calidad de vida.
