A loan of $375 helped to buy more animals and balanced feed.

Natividad's story

Natividad is 63 years old, single, and lives together with his family in Chepito Bajo sector, in Mórrope district. This is an agricultural district which is located in Lambayeque province, more than one hour from the city of Chiclayo.

Natividad has been raising and selling pigs for eight years. He raises the animals in a farmyard behind his home. He feeds his animals natural grains and when they have reached a good level of development he offers them for sale to the traders who frequently visit his area. In addition, he also farms.

Natividad would like to acquire more pigs (piglets) to fatten and also balanced feed. This will enable him to increase his business and make more income. For this reason, he has requested a loan for 1,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa in order to help him achieve his goal.
