Silvia Ines's story

Silvia is 58 years old and lives with her husband and her child. The house where she lives now is located in the Atahualpa neighborhood in the district of Tambogrande in the province of Piura. It is located three hours from the city of Chiclayo. She lives in a rural part of the district which has progressed very little as right now, the area only has basic electricity service.

Silvia lives in an area that is purely agricultural and focused on livestock. As a result, she too engages in this business as her principal financial activity. Together with her husband she has been selling livestock for 15 years, making her living in this business as well as working in agriculture. They currently want to plant lime trees which they can attend to with moderate technology. The good relationship that exists among them as a family is what has kept them united always in their businesses and their life projects.

In her dream of fulfilling her goals and objectives, Silvia wants to buy fertilizers for her lime planting as well as feed to fatten up her livestock and in tha tway be able to sell them either in the local market or to her customers in neighboring markets.

Silivia is a responsible, friendly and hardworking person. As such she has a good relationship will of her neighbors in the area where she lives.
