A loan of $550 helped to buy nutritionally balanced animal feed.


Julia's story

Julia, 47, is married living with her husband and five children in Hualtaco which is in the agricultural district of Tambogrande, an area in Piura region, over four hours from the city of Chiclayo, Lambayeque region’s capital.

She has cattle and sheep that she raises in her back yard. She feeds them natural grasses and when they reach ideal development she sells them to merchants who tend to come by the area where she lives. This activity is her most important source of income. Thanks to it she is able to help her husband, who is a farmer, to support the family.

She wants to acquire nutritionally balanced feed to improve the growth of the animals and earn higher income from their sale. She has, therefore, asked Edpyme Alternativa, for a 1500 new sol loan that will help her meet this goal.
