A loan of $375 helped to purchase commercial feed for her animals and to fix the pens for her poultry.

Evelia's story

Evelia, 29, is married and has 3 children. She lives in her own house in the tiny village of La Mónicas in the Tambogrande district, an agricultural area around Piura, more than four hours from Chiclayo, the capital city of Lambayeque Region. She lives in the rural part of this district, and doesn't have basic services.

Evelia raises and sells poultry, such as ducks, turkeys, and chickens. She raises them in a pen behind her house. Once she fattens them up she sells them in the local market. She has done this for more than 3 years. The loan will be used to purchase commercial feed for her animals to help them reach an ideal size and weight and fetch a better price. She also hopes to make improvements to her pen to better protect her animals. That way she can increase the number of birds she has and consequently her sales. For these reasons, she thought it best to request a loan of 1000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
