A loan of $375 helped to buy balanced feed and raise healthy animals.

Juan's story

Juan, who is 46 years old, lives with his wife and children in their own house. The house, which does not have basic services (utilities), is located in the rural zone of the district of Tambogrande, which belongs to the Piura department. In this zone people work in agriculture, livestock-raising, and handicrafts.

For several years Juan has raised and sold barnyard animals (sheep, pigs, and poultry). His pens are located behind his house, and they are suitable and big enough. He feeds the animals with balanced feed and natural grains so that they have an ideal growth and he can offer them for sale at the different markets in the zone and thus obtain good earnings to pay his family obligations.

He has applied to Edpyme Alternative for a loan of 1000 PEN for the purchase of balanced feed to produce healthy animals. With the earnings that he will obtain from the sale of his animals, he will be able to cover his loan as well as have a better quality of life. Juan is a person who with effort and much determination has known how to raise his family and offer his children other opportunities in life.
