Maria Isabel's story

Maria Isabel is 33 years old and she live with her husband and children in a house that is their own property. It is not equipped with the basic services and it is located in the district of Tambogrande, belonging to the department of Piura. It is a region known for its agricultural, farming, and artisan activities.

Maria Isabel has been selling livestock for 3 years (pigs, sheep, and poultry). She raises them in corrals located in the front section of her property. She feeds them balanced feed, grain, sand natural grasses. Once they are fully grown she sells them to clients or in the different markets of the regions. With the profits that she earns she is able to cover the household responsibilities.

She has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) in the amount of 1000 nuevos soles. She will purchase balanced feed. Once the livestock have grown she sells them to her clients and with the earnings she will repay her loan and she will improve the quality of life for her family. Maria Isabel plans to move her family forward through hard work and dedication, a fact that brings her great peace.
