A loan of $750 helped to buy feed and fertilizer.

Carlos Roberto's story

Carlos is 41 years-old and the male head of household. He lives with his wife and their two children. The house in which they currently live is located in the very small, rural village Guaraguaos Bajo Lote 80 in the district of Tambogrande. This district belongs to the province of Piura which is located some three hours from the city of Chiclayo. He lives in a rural part of this district in which little is progressing and now he only can rely on basic electric service.

Carlos makes his daily living raising and later selling animals like cattle and sheep, and fowl like ducks, turkey, and guinea pigs, among others. He's always been making a living in this area and already has approximately five years of experience in business. He's been doing this since he was very little with his parents. He has been able to install strategic spaces in his home for the raising of those same ones. Additionally he also makes money working daily as a day laborer on different large farms near his small village and by taking care of the mango plantations that he has to harvest on his property.

Carlos, already having clear and established objectives, wishes to buy feed which will serve to fatten his animals and also fertilizer to improve his production. He has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for a sum of 2000 Nuevos Saloes which will help him to generate a greater income. This will help them improve their quality of life and at the same time pay off his requested loan.

They enjoy good relations with their neighbors from the small village due to their good character.
