A loan of $575 helped to purchase animal feed and to ensure the health of her livestock.

Nancy's story

Nancy is 45 years old. She lives with her family in their own home, which does not have basic services. Their home is located in the rural area of Tambogrande District, Piura Department. The people of this area work in agriculture, raising livestock and handicrafts.

For the last few years, Nancy has made her living raising and selling sheep. Her corral is located behind her house. The sheep are suitable and she feeds them animal feed as well as natural grasses so they can achieve an ideal weight to be offered for sale in the different markets of the area. This way, she can earn a good profit and meet her daily, household expenses.

Nancy has requested a loan of 1500 nuevos soles (USD $575) from Edpyme Alternativa to purchase animal feed and to ensure the health of her livestock. With the profits she will earn from both of her businesses (see previous loan description), she will be able to cover the loan payments and have a better quality of life. Nancy is a person who with effort and a lot of determination has learned how to help her family to get ahead so they can meet the goals they have laid out for themselves.
