A loan of $700 helped to buy balanced food to fatten the animals.

Rosa Lucila's story

Rosa, 37, lives with her common-law husband and their three children in their own house. She tells us that the standard of living in her community is subsistence level, the majority of the inhabitants work on their own and raise and sell small animals as well as farm. Rosa’s house is in Pedregal Alto village in Tambogrande district, Piura department. This village only has basic electrical service and water drawn from a well and all the families in the village live this way.
Rosa’s business is raising, fattening and selling small animals such as: poultry and pigs and she keeps them in small corrals outside her house. She also tells us that she sells them in local markets or to wholesale animal buyers. It's worth noting that Rosa has been in the business for 4 years and this has allowed her to develop an established customer base.
Now Rosa would like to increase her inventory for sale, by fattening and marketing the animals (pigs and poultry) since this is a good business for her area. Thus she is requesting a new loan of 1800 new sols to buy balanced food for fattening, and to improve the corrals. These activities will help her raise the standard of living for her family.
