A loan of $450 helped to purchase livestock.


Laureano's story

Laureano is 55 years old, he is married and he lives together with his wife and their children in the community of Sialupe Baca in the district of Lambayeque. It is a region located about half an hour from the city of Chiclayo.

He raises livestock for a living. He has sheep and poultry in various corrals located near his home. He raises the livestock and when they have reached a certain level in their development he sells them to merchants who visit the region where he lives. This is his primary source of income and so he tries to do his very best.

Laureano wants to acquire more livestock to expand his business and see an increase in his ales. He has requested a first time loan of Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) in the amount of 1200 nuevos soles to reach his goal.

He is a very calm and entrepreneurial person. His goal is to keep growing as a small business owner and to improve the quality of life for his family.
