A loan of $375 helped to buy balanced animal feed.


Maura's story

Maura is 49 years old. She has a common-law marriage and three children. She lives with her partner in her own home which is located in the agricultural district of Tambogrande, in Piura region, four hours from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of Lambayeque department.

Maura's business is raising pigs and poultry. She has a farmyard and farm where she raises her animals. She has an established customer base in her area and has been in business for five years. When her animals have reached an ideal size and weight, she sells them to her neighbors and / or the traders who visit her area. She uses the income from her business to cover her family's expenses.

Maura would like to buy balanced feed for her animals so that they reach a suitable size and weight in less time and she can sell them. For this reason, she has requested a loan for 1,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
