Jose Antonio's story

José is 23 years old and lives in his own home with his wife and child. The only service he receives is electricity. José resides in the District of Tambogrande, which is part of the Department of Piura. This area is known for agriculture, livestock breeding, and handicrafts.

José has been raising and selling sheep for a few years. The animals are kept in an area behind his house. Their diet consists of balanced feed and natural grasses. Once the animals have reached the ideal size and weight, José offers them for sale at different markets. He has his own customers in the city of Piura. In addition, José drives a motorcycle taxi to earn more income to help with covering daily expenses.

He is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1200 PEN in order to buy feed for his animals. This will allow him to provide a good diet for his animals so that he can offer them at a better price. José is a person who is well-known in the place where he lives because he is always concerned about the welfare of others. What he desires most is to provide his family a better quality of life.
