Antonio's story

Antonio, 45, is married and lives together with his wife and children in Tranca Fanupe, one of the villages that belong to the district of Mórrope, an agricultural region populated mainly by humble and hard-working people. It belongs to the province of Lambayeque and is located more than an hour outside of the city of Chiclayo. Antonio has worked in agriculture since he was young. He breeds sheep and small animals in the back of his house. Usually, he sells the milk from his cows to neighbors. He sells the young animals to local merchants and to the general public once they have completely developed. In addition, Antonio also works as a laborer in one of the neighboring fields. The income earned from these activities help Antonio care for his family. He is always looking for ways to get ahead in his business. He wishes to buy food for his animals so that they can develop better and he can supply better production. For this purpose, Antonio has decided to request a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 1,500 soles (USD 500).
