A loan of $725 helped to provide his animals with a balanced diet.


Luis Ernan's story

Luis is 23 years old, single, and lives with his parents and siblings in the district of Tambogrande, in the province and region of Piura. This area is characterized by the fact that most of the people there cultivate fruit.

Luis raises sheep and cattle, which he keeps at a location close to his house. He fattens them with a balanced diet and when they are adequately developed, he sells them to his neighbors or to the merchants who arrive in their area. This work allows him to earn money for his personal expenses, and at the same time, to help his family with its daily needs. Luis is very well known in the area where he lives, so he is supported by his neighbors and friends.

Luis is always working to help his family get ahead. At the moment, he would like to buy more well-balanced food for his cows. For this reason, he decided to request a loan of 2,000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Aternativa. This sum will help him meet his goal.
