This region's primary business activities are commerce, agriculture, and tourism (enjoying very beautiful religious festivities). Natividad has been raising and selling pigs and cows for the past 10 years. His corral is located outside his house. He feeds them balanced feed and natural grasses so that his they will have an optimum development and so that he will be able to sell them in the markets of the region. He will obtain good profits to cover his expenses. Natividad has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) of 1000 nuevos soles to purchase better livestock to produce a better quality of milk, and to improve the size and quality of meat from his pigs. His objective is to obtain a better price from his clients and to improve his quality of life. Natividad is a hardworking and very responsible person. The only thing that he wants is to keep his business growing.
