Alberto's story

Alberto, 59, lives in his own house which only has electricity with his family. It’s located in Tambogrande District that belongs to Piura Department. This zone is noted for farming, animal husbandry and crafts making.

For some years now Alberto has been raising small farm animals (pigs and sheep) to sell. His corrals are located in his back yard and they are spacious and appropriate. He feeds the animals with nutritionally balanced feed so that they will reach optimal growth and he can sell them in various local markets obtaining good profits to cover family expenses.

He’s asked Edpyme Alternativa for a 2000 new sol loan to buy more animals of different species and their respective feed. Profits from the animal sales will be used to repay the loan and to have a better quality of life. Alberto is a person who has known how to move his family forward through much effort and dedication to overcome life’s difficulties.
