A loan of $550 helped expand his corrals and purchase balanced feed.

Francisco's story

Francisco is 41 years old, single, and has no dependent children. He lives with his family in the San Antonio de Padua annex in the district of Lambayeque, a rural area where people mostly work in agriculture and raise animals.

For more than three years, he has worked raising and selling young animals. He raises sheep in an area located in the back part of his home. He feeds them natural grasses and when they have reached a good level of development, he sells them to merchants that visit the area where he lives. The income he earns from this activity meets his personal expenses and allows him to help his family financially.

Francisco would like to expand his corrals and buy balanced feed so that his sheep can develop better and he can earn more money from their sales. To do this, he has asked Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1500 nuevos soles.
