Alejandro's story

Alejandro is 60 years old and the father of three children who are independent. He lives in his own house and receives water and electricity services. Alejandro resides in the District of Guadalupe, which is part of the Department of La Libertad. This area is known for having businesses that involve farming, livestock breeding, and tourism (with an emphasis on archaeological sites).

Alejandro has been raising and selling animals, such as sheep, goats, and other forms of livestock, for several years. He has the appropriate type of animal pens with enough space for keeping the sheep. The pens are located behind his house. He provides the animals balanced feed, such as natural grasses. Once the animals have reached the ideal size and weight, he offers them for sale at different markets in the area. With the money he earns from the sale of his animals, Alejandro is able to provide for his personal needs. In addition, he has another business preparing food for all types of events.

He is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 2000 PEN so that he can buy more animals, the appropriate feed, and utensils for preparing food whenever anyone requests his services. Alejandro is known in the area for the good service he provides to his customers. He is a hardworking and dedicated person who puts forth much effort into his work so that he can get ahead.
