A loan of $225 helped to buy nutritionally balanced animal feed.

Maria Deysi's story

María, 36, is single. She lives in her own house located in Tambogrande district in Piura Department, a rural zone that has basic utilities.

María’s activity is raising pigs and barnyard fowl that she fattens up for subsequent sale in the local market; she also butchers them to sell the meat. She’s been carrying out this line of work for over 3 years in her back yard. She also farms. She has a one hectare plot of farmland planted with lemons. She got this lot as an inheritance from her father.

María is an enterprising woman and in order to be able to do her activities has decided to get a 600 new sol loan from Edpyme Alternativa to buy nutritionally balanced feed for her livestock and fowl so that they will attain good size and weight so that they can be sold later for a better price and she can continue to grow in the business.
