Santos Candido's story

Santos, 61, has a live-in spouse and a son. He lives with his family in one of Tambogrande’s districts, a district in Piura province, Piura region, and notable because its residents are mostly fruit growers.

He raises pigs and goats. He raises goats at home feeding them natural grasses. When they have reached a good level of development he sells them to merchants that frequent his neighborhood. This activity is his main source of income that allows him to meet personal expenses and help his family. Because of this he always strives to maintain it in the best possible way.

In addition he is a farmer. He has a piece of land where he grows mangoes and lemons. He sells these products at good prices to his neighbors who come to buy from him because of the kind treatment they receive from him.

He currently would like to acquire nutritionally balanced feed so that his animals will grow better thus increasing sales and profits. To reach this goal he has requested a 500 new sol loan from Edpyme Alternativa.
