Jaime's story

Jaime is 38 years old. He is single and he lives in his own house, equipped with running water and electricity, in the Mórrope district, approximately 40 minutes away from the Lambayeque department. In these areas people engage in agriculture, breeding and craftsmanship.

Jaime breeds sheep, an activity he has been running for 4 years. He breeds his animals at the back of his house, feeding them both with animal feed and in natural pastures. Once they have reached the ideal size and weight he sells them in the various markets of the town of Piura. Getting the best incomes in this way, he is able to pay for his daily expenses. He also engages in agriculture in other people’s lands.

Jaime asked Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 2000 PEN to buy more animals and their feed because, grass having become scarce for the lack of rain, he needs to keep them well fed to then sell them at a better price. Jaime is a very well-known member of his community because he is a responsible and extremely hardworking man who has been able to progress in life thanks to his determination.
