A loan of $350 helped to buy animals to raise to sell the meat.


María Gaby's story

María Gaby is 27, single, and lives with her parents in the Insculas area, a rural district of Olmos, in Lambayeque province, located two hours from the city of Chiclayo.

For more than a year she has been working selling meat. She raises young animals and birds in the yard by her house. She fattens them, and when they have reached their optimal size, she slaughters them so that she can then sell the meat by kilo to her neighbors. Her business is very useful to her neighbors since the area where they live is away from the city and they don’t have enough reason to go there every day.

This business also helps her family since her earnings are a support for her family. María Gaby wants to enlarge her business by buying more animals to raise and sell. That is why she is asking for a loan for the first time from Edypme Alternativa of 1000 sols.

María Gaby is a hardworking woman who is close to her family. He biggest goal is to develop the level of sales and to become better known in the area. She is very respected by the neighbors and customers-they see her as a trustworthy person.
