Maria Yeny's story

Maria is a 25 year old mother who lives in her parents’ house in a rural settlement called Holleria, located some 10 minutes from Morrope District, which belongs to Lambayeque Province and is about 1 hour from the city of Chiclayo. The inhabitants in the area engage in agriculture, cattle raising and handicrafts among other activities. These are rural villages that do not have basic services.

Maria raises small animals every day, such as ducks, turkeys and chickens among others, and then markets them. She has been doing this for approximately 4 years and gained knowledge of the business from her parents. She has been able to set up strategic areas at the house for her animals. In addition she generates other income every day by cutting hair and performing all other tasks associated with a beautician. She acquired that knowledge through a technical course that her parents helped her take. The unity and affection that she shares with her parents have encouraged them to undertake new family objectives. That is why they all work every day to achieve their goals and thus better their life situation.

In her desire to continue growing economically, Maria has decided to invest in the purchase of poultry and at the same time in the purchase of small birds for commercial purposes. Consequently she is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternative for the above necessities.

Maria is a much respected woman who is held in high regard for the good deeds she performs in her village.
