Yohny David's story

Yohny is a father. He is 22 years old and lives with his wife, his 2 youngest children, and his mother who is widowed. They live in Hualtaco, a rural area in the Tambogrande district. In this area they produce fruits such as mango, passion fruit, and lemons, similar to the Piura province which is located in the same region, more than 3 hours from the city of Chiclayo. The capital of this region is called Lambayeque.

He works in agriculture, more specifically cattle-farming. He has five head of cattle who produce milk on a daily basis. He sells this product to his neighbors and a gatherer of the area, who in turn sells it to one of the largest diary processing companies in the country. He feeds his cows with natural grass. He uses the revenue from this activity to maintain the economy of his family.

Yohny wants to improve the production of his cows in acquiring a balanced feed, but he does not have sufficient capital to do so. He has decided to apply for the first time for a loan from Edpyme Alternative of 700 new soles. With this investment the production of his cows will increase and he will receive greater earnings.

Yohny is a young fighter and hard worker. His greatest wish is to continue to grow as a businessman to provide his family a better quality of life. In the area where he lives he is well known and liked.
