A loan of $1,125 helped buy fertilizers and balanced food.

Maria Ignacia's story

Maria is 33 years old, is married and has 3 children who are of school age. She has her own home where she lives with her family in a small neighborhood called “Vallecito” in the district of Tambogrande, part of Piura province. It is a neighborhood in development which up to this point only has electricity.

Maria works in agriculture and has lemon crops which are harvested weekly and sold in neighboring markets. With her husband’s help they also breed, fatten and sell sheep, goats, and poultry. They support each other in their work since the relationship that exists in their family is very good which is why they have well thought out goals and wish to have a better quality of life and above all have new and better educational opportunities for their children.

Maria needs a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 3000 Nuevos Soles which will be used to buy fertilizers for her lemon trees and balanced food for her animals which will allow them to have better weight and size which will help her get better prices.
