Esperanza's story

Esperanza, 61, is married and has two children in her care. She lives in her own house with her spouse and children. The house is located in Caserío La Salina in Tambogrande District and it has electricity. The place is a small community of approximately 150 families.

The activity Esperanza does is raising small farm animals (sheep, goats, pigs and barnyard fowl) to sell. When they reach exact size and weight she sells them in the local market. She’s been doing this activity for about 25 years and the business is located at home; she learned it from her parents which means she knows the line of work to perfection. Complementarily, her husband is a farmer; he has 2 hectares of land planted with lemons, mangoes and cocoa beans. He harvests weekly which allows them to have additional income.

The amount of the requested loan is 1500 new soles that will be used to buy nutritionally balanced animal feed and fertilizer for the crops. This investment will allow her to continue growing.
