Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos is 35, single, and lives in his parents' house, which has basic services. It is located in the rural area of Morropón district, which belongs to Piura department. People in this area make their living from farming and livestock-raising.

For several years, Carlos has been raising and selling farmyard animals (sheep, goats, and pigs). His pens are located behind his house, and are large and suitable for this purpose. He provides them with balanced animal feed and natural grazing, so that his animals attain their maximum growth. This is so he can sell them in the different markets in the area, and obtain good earnings to cover his personal expenses.

He has applied to Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1,500 nuevos soles to buy more animals and their respective feed. With earnings that he gets by selling his animals, he will be able to pay back his loan and have a better quality of life.

Carlos is a person who with effort, hard work and determination has managed to help his family get ahead, in spite of the difficulties that have arisen in his life.
