Ysabel's story

Ysabel, 56, is married and has a son in her care. She lives with her family in Platillos hamlet, a rural zone in the agricultural Tambogrande District which has a tropical climate good for fruit production like mangoes and lemons. The zone is located in Piura Region five hours from the city of Chiclayo, Lambayeque Region’s capital.

She raises cattle which produce fresh milk to sell every day; she also raises sheep, pigs and turkeys which when they reach ideal size and weight are sold at the local market. Her husband’s a farmer; he has his own parcel of land where he grows mangoes and cotton.

Ysabel wants to buy nutritionally balanced feed for her animals so that she can sell them at a better price in the local market and also increase her cows’ milk production. This investment will allow her to continue growing in her business and thus improve her quality of life.

To reach her objective she’s asked Edpyme Alternativa for a 2000 new sol loan. She’s had Edpyme Alternativa loans in the past and she’s proven to be quite a responsible, punctual client with her payments.
