A loan of $375 helped to buy balanced feed for sheep.


Jorge Luis's story

Jorge is 51 years old and lives in his own home, together with his wife, in Tambogrande district - Piura. This is a community that is keen to develop.

Jorge raises sheep which he then sells in the local market. He also works as a manual worker for a company in his town.

Jorge's wife raises poultry and supports him in his business activities. They have a good family relationship.

Jorge and his wife's efforts have enabled them to obtain some comforts in life and, for this reason, Jorge would like to continue working so that he can totally improve his quality of life.

Jorge is requesting a loan for 1,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa which he will invest in balanced feed for his sheep. This will mean that they will have better litters which he will then be able to sell for better prices in the market.
