Rosa Mercedes's story

Mercedes is a hard-working, 32 year-old woman who lives in the rural part of Lambayeque district. She has good personal references owing to the effort that she puts into her work.

Mercedes' business is raising and selling poultry and pigs. She has been in this business for three years and knows it like the back of her hand. She already has an established customer base in her area. Mercedes has a great desire to do well and she does her work carefully so that she can achieve her main goal of improving her quality of life.

Mercedes is requesting a loan for 2,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa to buy animals and the balanced feed that they need. She will also fix her pen so that she can better raise her pigs and birds. This will help her to increase her production.

Mercedes is a long-standing client of our institution and she has a good credit history.
