A loan of $375 helped purchase a balanced diet [for his sheep].

Benigno Fredy's story

Benigno is a 25 year old bachelor. He lives in his parents’ house in the Tambogrande district, an agricultural area found in the Piura province and region of the same name. It is more than four hours from Chiclayo city, capital of the Lambayeque region.

For five years, Benigno has raised and sold small farm animals, specifically sheep and poultry. He raises the animals in corrals located in his home. When they have developed enough, he offers them for sale to traders in the area. This activity allows him to help his family financially.

Now he wants to acquire a balanced diet to fatten up his sheep, so that he can sell them for a better price at the market. This way, he can keep growing his business and improving his quality of life. This is why he found it fitting to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1000 nuevos soles [Peruvian currency].
