Francisca's story

Francisca, 53, is married and lives with her family in the Guaraguaos settlement, in a rural area that is part of the agricultural district of TambogranD., located in the Piura region, more than 3 and a half hours from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the Lambayeque region.

Francisca raises and sells small animals, particularly sheep and barnyard fowl. She feeds the animals with grains and field grasses. When they have reached a good level of development she offers them for sale to the traders in the area. Her husband is a farmer and he is now planting mango plants. With the income that they both earn they proviD. for their family.

She wants to expand her business with the purchase of more animals and feed to raise them. She thinks that this would increase her sales so that she could earn more. To do this, she is requesting for the first time a loan with Edpyme Alternativa for 1,500 Peruvian soles.

Francisca is a woman who is very dedicated to her family and her work. She spends her days caring for her home and for her animals. The people who know her consider her to be a person who is calm and responsible.
