Martina's story

Martina is 51 years old and lives with her husband in the district of TambogranD. – Piura. Martina lives in the rural part of the district, which lacks basic services. This motivates her to work all the hours she can, every day. Martina currently earns her living by engaging in three separate activities. Her goal is to have a better quality of life. The first activity is sheep farming, in which she has been involved for 4 years. She has 40 sheep at present, which she raises and fattens for sale. In addition, Martina has a small shop in the main room of her house, where she sells essential products like milk, eggs, butter and water to an established client base. Finally, Martina sells clothes to people in her area. She has requested the loan for the latter activity, to purchase M. clothes for onward sale. Martina has asked Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1000 nuevos soles, which she will use to buy clothes to fulfil existing orders from clients. Martina is known in her community as a hardworking and kind woman, and has good personal references.
