A loan of $575 helped to buy balanced feed.

Maria Ventura's story

Maria is a new client in our institution. She is 62 years old and lives with one of her sons and her husband. They live in their own home located in the district of Cayalti, which is approximately two hours from the province of Chiclayo. Cayalti is a district in which most of its residents work in agriculture and cattle ranching.

Maria also does these activities and for many years she has sold animals, mostly cattle. People know how she works and she is much sought after to fill her customers' orders. She and her husband go to the different communities buying and selling their animals.

Maria is asking for a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1500 Nuevos Soles. They will be used to buy balanced feed so they will grow more quickly and be sold at better prices. This way, she will make more profit and be able to improve her quality of life.
