A loan of $750 helped to purchase more livestock and their feed.


Juan's story

Juan is 35 years old, single, and he has a house of his own. It is not equipped with basic services (water, electricity, or sewage services). It is located in a rural region in the department of Lambayeque. This district is known for its population who are involved in agriculture, farming, and tourism activities.

Juan raises and sells poultry, such as chicken and turkeys, sheep, and goats from corrals. They are located in the external part of his property. He feeds them balanced feed and natural grasses. Once they have reached an optimal level in their development he offers them for sale to the locals and at the different markets in Lambayeque. The livestock sales help him earn an income to cover his personal expenses.

With the loan that he requests he will purchase more livestock and feed to keep increasing his sales and to achieve a better quality of life. He has seen it convenient to request a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) in the amount of 2000 nuevos soles. Juan is a person who wants to excel in life, being a responsible and earnest person in everything he does. He has always had an objective to keep increasing his business to be able to repay his loan and to advance more every day.
