Cesar Augusto's story

César is a 36-year-old father who lives with his wife and two dependent children. They live in a small rural village called Caracucho. Most of the people who live in the village farm and raise livestock as their main business activity. The village is located 20 minutes from Mórrope district which is, in turn, approximately two hours from Lambayeque province.

César's business activity is raising and selling animals. He feeds them and raises them until they reach an ideal size and weight. He then sells them in the markets in Chiclayo and Lambayeque. He feeds and raises his animals in very well equipped pens which are located outside his home. César's wife is a teacher in the school in their village.

César would like to continue growing his business and satisfying his customers. For this reason, he has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 2,000 soles. He will use it to buy more animals and their respective feed.

César is a friendly and calm person who is very well liked in his village. His products are very much in demand from the large number of customers that he has attracted over the time that he has been working in this business.
