José Jesus's story

Jose, age 31, is married and lives with his wife and their six children in the Olmos district of the Lambayeque province, located about two hours away from the city of Chiclayo.

For four years, Jose has been making a living by raising and commercializing sheep and goat livestock. He raises his animals at home, and when they reach a good level of development, he offers them for sale to the general public as well as to the merchants who visit the area. With the income from this activity, Jose is able to provide for his family.

Jose would like to expand his business by purchasing more animals and balanced animal feed, thereby increasing his sales. For this reason, he has decided to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 2000 soles.
