A loan of $725 helped to buy animals and balanced feed in order to expand her business of raising and selling animals.

María Emérita's story

María Emérita is 24 years old. She is single and has no dependent children. She lives with her parents in the village of La Colorada in the district of Mórrope, an agricultural region which is located in the province of Lambayeque, more than an hour from the city of Chiclayo.

She raises and sells young animals. She raises her animals on her property and sells them to neighbors and dealers who usually visit the area where she lives. The income that she makes from this activity is used to cover her personal expenses and to help her parents in supporting the family financially.

María would like to expand her business with the purchase of more animals and balanced feed so that she can increase her sales and make more profit. She would also like to make some improvements in her pens. This is why she has made her first loan request from Edpyme Alternativa for 2,000 nuevos soles.

María is a determined woman who has a great desire to get ahead. She plans to work hard in order to continue contributing to the development of her family.
