Mercy Veronica's story

Mercy is 30, has 3 children, and is a single mother. She lives in her own home and has good personal and professional references in the community in the district of Olmos. It is a small community, and the locals are friendly and respectful.

Mercy has raised and sold small animals for 2 years in the Virrey area, which is one hour from Olmos. She hopes to invest in her business, specifically in fixing her corral and buying food like corn. This will let her make a better income and therefore have better living conditions. This is why she thought it was a good idea to obtain a loan of 1,000 PEN from Edpyme Alternativa.

The market is good for this type of business since the majority of people in the area raise and sell small livestock. Mercy's goal is to sell her animals at a good price and to invest in their food. This is why she is putting forth maximum effort to reach her goal. She works more that 8 hours a day.
