Primitiva's story

Primitiva is 41 years old, and has three children. She lives with her husband in a small, rural community in the district of Tambogrande, Piura. Primitiva is known for being a happy and hardworking woman who is dedicated to her family. Primitiva has raised sheep for 5 years. She has appropriate and spacious pens behind her house. Primitiva has fixed clients and sells her animals mostly to people in her area. She also works in agriculture, using inherited land on which she grows lemons, which she sows twice a year. Primitiva requests a loan for 1500 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa to buy animal feed and adequate fertilization for her crops. These activities permit Primitiva to go forward in her business and to have a higher income to improve her quality of life.
