A loan of $550 helped to buy more birds for his poultry business.

Maximo's story

Maximo, 64, lives with his wife and children in a house that he owns. The house has electricity, but no running water. Maximo lives in La Victoria, a district in Peru's "departamento" of Chiclayo. Local people operate commercial businesses and transportation services.

Maximo raises and sells poultry (turkeys) for a living. He keeps the birds in a yard behind his house. He feeds them a balanced diet that includes natural grains. He sells the birds when they're ready for market and uses the income to support his family.

Maximo is applying to Edpyme Alternativa for a 1500 new soles loan that he will use to buy more birds and the feed he needs to fatten them for market. He plans to sell the birds locally, adding more customers as he grows and, in turn, increasing his income. Maximo is a responsible, hard-working man and his only wish is to grow his business so that he can continue supporting his family and provide them with a better quality of life.
