Erminia's story

Erminia is a cheerful and hardworking woman of 40 years old. She is the mother of a family and lives in her own house with her 3 children and her husband, who supports her in her work. Erminia lives in a small rural community in the district of Tambogrande – Piura, which does not have access to all the basic utilities.

Erminia dedicates herself to farming and raising livestock. She harvests lemons and raises sheep, which she later sells. Erminia has a large flock of 36 sheep, and her husband helps her to look after them. She has been doing this for over 5 years.

Erminia is seeking a loan of 1000 Soles from [the field partner] Edpyme Alternativa, in order to maintain her lemon crop with fertilizers and to buy feed for her sheep.

Erminia has a great desire to improve her situation, and this loan will give her the opportunity to continue developing her business.
