A loan of $750 helped to buy feed.


Juana's story

Juana is 49 years old and she and her husband have their own home and live there along with their two children. The house is located in the rural settlement of “Sialupe-Humantanga,” which is part of the Lambayaque district, located 15 minutes from the city of Chiclayo. Most of the residents in her settlement raise and sell animals.

Juana’s principle activity is the raising and selling of livestock, such as sheep, goats, and coral birds in large numbers. She sells them in the local markets where she has steady customers and who also sell things in the same markets.

She also generates income by selling corn chicha (a fermented drink of the Incas), and she’s been doing this for five years.

Juana is requesting a loan of 2,000 PEN through Edpyme Alternativa, to buy balanced feed to better promote the growth of her livestock and be able to offer them at better prices. In this way she can increase her income, allowing her to better meet her financial obligations, and improve her quality of life.
