A loan of $350 helped purchase balanced feed to fatten cattle.

Jose Adalberto's story

José is 31 years old. He is single and lives together with his parents in the hamlet of El Médano in the Olmos district, located 2 hours and 20 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

Since he was very young he has worked breeding and fattening cattle. He has 6 heads of cattle and makes use of the milk they product, and he also fattens them to sell to the business people that normally visit the zone where he lives. This business is the only source of income that allows him to cover his personal costs and help support his family.

José wants to improve the quality of his cattle that have been a handicap because of the dry period that has hit the region. For this motive he wants to buy balanced feed but doesn't have the capital to do this. He has seen it necessary for the first time to seek a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 1000 nuevos soles.

José is highly regarded by those who know him, and they consider him a very responsible and hard working person.
