A loan of $725 helped to buy young birds to fatten and also balanced feed.

Maria Juana's story

María is 47 years old, married, and has one school-age child. She owns her own home which is located in Túcume district, 35 minutes from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of Lambayeque department.

María raises and sells animals. She has been in this business for 15 years and runs it from her home. She learned the business from her parents who carried out the same work. In addition to this, María makes and sells chicha (a corn-based drink) which is traditional in Lambayeque department.

María would like to buy some young birds to fatten and also some balanced feed for her birds and pigs. This will enable her to expand her business and thereby make more income. For this reason, she has requested a loan for 2,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
