A loan of $450 helped buy sheep, goats and pigs.

Rosa Del Carmen's story

Rosa is 51 years old; she is married and has 2 adult daughters who are economically independent. She lives in a rural area called “the ranch” part of the Olmos district, some 2 hours from the Lambayeque province. In Rosa’s neighborhood, the majority of the people make their living from raising and selling animals and agriculture.

Rosa works in Fundo Santa Rosa (a farm) where she receives her income every two weeks, she earns additional income by selling animals as do most of her neighbors. Rosa breeds the animals, takes care of them until they have the ideal weight and size and later sells them to the customers that she has had for three years since the beginning of her business.

The unity and support that exists between Rosa, her daughters and husband have led her to make many goals and wishes to improve the family’s quality of life.

Rosa needs a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 1200 Nuevos Soles that will be used to buy sheep, goats, and pigs to be able to meet her customers’ orders.

Rosa is known by our institution for being a very responsible person since she has paid her all of her previous loans.
