Tomás's story

Tomas is a 34 year-old father who lives with his wife and their 3 children in the rural CP-10 settlement in the Tambogrande district. This is an agricultural area located in the Piura region, M. than 4 hours from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the Lambayeque region.

Tomas raises and sells sheep and pigs. He raises his livestock on his own land, where he has set up corrals for his animals. When they have reached a good level of development, he offers them for sale to the merchants who often visit the area where he lives. He has been raising livestock for 4 years, and he is able to support his family with the income that he earns from this business.

He wants to buy some balanced feed for his livestock, since the demand for them is increasing. To do this he is requesting a loan for 1,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa.

Tomas is a person who is very dedicated to his family and is always watching out for their welfare and development. The people who know him are very fond of him and hold him in high esteem.
