Santos's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped Buy pigs and a calf to increase his business of raising and selling animals.
Santos is 51 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and a son in the Bodegones sector of the district of Lambayeque, the capital of the province of the same name, located 20 minutes from the city of Chiclayo. He has been raising and selling animals for 15 years. He raises barnyard fowl, pigs, and cattle in corrals near his home, and when they have reached a good size, he offers them for sale to dealers who come to the zone. This activity provides him with an additional source of income that helps him to maintain his family. In addition, he works as an agricultural worker, but this activity does not provide him sufficient income. Santos wants to increase his business with the purchase of pigs and a calf to raise and sell. This business is very well received in this area, and by acquiring these animals, he will be able to earn more income, which will permit him to advance his family. To reach his goal, he has seen the necessity of applying to Edpyme Alternative for the first time for a loan of 1000 PEN. Santos is a responsible father who always watches out for the development and well being of his family. He greatest wish is to offer his son the opportunity to study for a better career, to assure him of a better future.
