Erwing's story

29-year-old Erwing lives with his wife and children in his own home which does not have basic services. His house is located in the rural part of Cayaltí district, in Lambayeque department. This area is noted for its farming and livestock raising. Erwing has been raising and selling farmyard birds (hens and turkeys) for some years. His pen is located behind his house. It is suitable and spacious. He feeds his birds balanced feed and natural grains so that they reach an optimal level of growth. This means that he can sell them in the different markets in his area and make very good profits with which to cover his family expenses. Erwing has requested a loan for 1,200 soles from Edpyme Alternativa to buy more animals and their respective feed. He will use the income that he makes to repay his loan and improve his quality of life. Erwing is a pleasant person who has a great desire to do well in life, providing his children with the best so that they can achieve their own personal success.
