A loan of $575 helped to buy animal feed.

Anny Magdalena's story

Anny, 26, is married and lives with her husband and children in Guayaquil Annex, Cayaltí district, located an hour and a half from the city of Chiclayo.

She raises small farm animals. She commented that the idea for the business arose from her need to stay permanently in the area due to health issues of her oldest son. She used to travel constantly to the city of Lima to bring merchandise that she sold based on prior orders she’d get but now she is exclusively dedicated to raising small farm animals and tending to a small grocery store. She usually raises barnyard fowl and guinea pigs to sell to merchants that visit the area where she lives. Occasionally she sells them to her neighbors.

Anny has had a previous loan that was financed through Kiva funds. She used it to get feed for the fowl and her business has now grown steadily. She now wants to buy more animal feed as well as to make some home improvements. For this reason she is once again requesting a 1600 new sol loan from Edpyme Alternativa.

Anny is happy and quite grateful to the people who collaborated with her through the Kiva program.
