A loan of $200 helped to buy balanced feed and to improve his animal pens.


Benjamin's story

Benjamín is 26 years old. He lives with his common-law wife and dependent child. He lives in his own home, in the small village of Jesús María, 3km from Cruceta, which is an outlying village of Tambogrande district. He has electricity in his home but does not yet have piped water or sewerage.

Benjamín raises sheep and poultry. Once they have reached an ideal weight and size, he sells them in the local market. He also works as a security guard in a fruit processing company. With the money from these jobs, he faces up to his family obligations. He has been in his business for more than one year.

Benjamín is requesting a loan for 500 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa. He would like to use this money to buy feed for his animals and to make some improvements to his animal pens since he hopes to increase his stock and, thereby, his sales, so that he can continue growing in his business.

Benjamín is a father who is committed to his family and he always watches over their well-being and development. People who know him have a lot of respect and affection for him.
