Lusmila's story

Lusmila is 67 years old and she is a widow. She has a young son. She lives with her family (her son) in a community in the department of Cajamarca. It is a medium-sized community which aspires to improve. Lusmila raises and fattens cows and she also sells milk. She has been in business for many years so she has a steady and loyal clientele. Lusmila raises her cattle in corrals located near her house and she sells them in the local markets. She sells the milk to the neighborhood high school. Lusmila requests a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) in the amount of 2000 nuevos soles to purchase calves to raise and fatten and to purchase balanced feed for the cattle she currently has. She has plenty of natural grasses. Lusmila is a woman of good character and she enjoys helping others. She has very good references from those individuals who know her.
