Santos Elida's story

Santos, 39, lives in her own house with her husband and son. The only service her house receives is electricity. It is located in the rural area of Tambogrande district in Piura department. This area is characterized by its agriculture, cattle-raising and handicrafts. For some years now, Santos has been raising sheep and goats. Her corral is located behind her house and is suitable and spacious. She feeds her livestock a balanced diet and provides natural pastures so that they reach an optimal level of growth and she is able to sell them in the different markets in the area and make a good profit. This enables her to meet her daily household expenses. She has requested a loan of 1,000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa in order to buy other types of animals and their respective feed. With the income she receives from her sales she can cover her loan and improve her quality of life. Santos is a very hardworking and responsible person who wants only to be able to provide amenities and economic improvements for her family.
