Alenjandrina is 39 years old and married with 2 children. She lives in the rural area of Lambeyeque, Northern Peru, in a community of around 100 families who have basic water and electricity services. She specializes in the raising and selling of poultry and of dairy products from her cow. She has been doing this activity for the past 12 years, having inherited the talent and learned the tasks form her parents.
She has identified an opportunity to buy a cow at a discount, as well as poultry and animal feed, and is now getting a loan of 2,500 soles from Edpyme Alternativa. She feels that even though competition in this market is strong there is also a big market where she can commercialize her goods.
