A loan of $375 helped to purchase balanced feed for her livestock.

Aracely Del Carmen's story

Aracely, 24 years old, lives with her husband and children in their own home. They have electricity but no running water, since their home is located in a rural area of Tambogrande, in the department of Piura. This area is known for its agriculture, livestock, and handicrafts.

For four years Aracely has been raising and selling sheep and barnyard fowl. Her pens, which are spacious and functional, are behind her house. She gives her animals balanced feed, grains, and grasses so they'll grow quickly and she can sell them in the regional markets. The profits she makes from selling the animals allow her to cover her family obligations.

She has requested a loan of 1000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa to buy balanced feed to keep fattening her animals and selling them to her customers. She will use her earnings to pay off the loan and improve her family's life. Aracely is a hard-working, responsible person who wants to help her family get ahead.
