A loan of $325 helped to buy balanced animal feed and fix the corrals.


Guiancarlo's story

Giancarlo is a 20 year old man who is single and does not have children. He lives in his own house with his parents. He lives in a substance-level community where the majority of residents are independent workers who work in commerce or raising small animals and some also work in agriculture. Giancarlo lives in the village of Peña Viva in the district of Tambogrande and the department of Piura. Here he has only basic electrical supply and they get their water from an artesian well. All the families from here live under these conditions. Giancarlo works raising and selling sheep, goats, and poultry. He raises his animals in corrals outside his house. It is noteworthy that Giancarlo has 2 years of experience in this work and, as a result, he has loyal customers. He sells his animals to the wholesalers in the area. Currently, Giancarlo is proposing to grow his inventory, or, in other words, to raise and sell more animals. This is because it is a very profitable activity in this area. It is for these reasons that he is requesting a new loan from Edpyme Alternativa for the sum of $325, which will be used to buy balanced animal feed and fix the corrals. In time, this will enable him to improve his quality of life.
