Magaly's story

Magaly is a twenty-two-year-old mother of a family. She lives with her husband and children in a house that she owns, though it lacks basic services. It is located in Tambogrande, a district in the Peruvian "departmento" of Piura. The region is characterized by by agricultural activity, ranching, and craft work.

Magaly has made her living for several years by breeding and selling poultry and pigs. She has a corral in back of the house and she feeds them balanced diet, complete with natural grains. Once they reach their optimum growth, she is able to offer them to clients, and with the earnings she pays her family's expenses.

She has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa of 1000 PEN in order to buy balanced feed for her animals and improve their corrals. Once the animals fatten, she sells them at different markets in the region with the object of getting the best price for them. This way she is able to have more money and a better quality of life. Magaly is a hardworking and very responsible person, and the only thing she wants is for her family to get ahead.
