A loan of $575 helped to buy feed for fattening her animals and to fix her corrals.

Miriam Aguedita's story

Miriam is 43 years old. She lives with her partner and has two children in her charge. She lives in her own house with her husband and her children. She says that the quality of life in her community is that of subsistence. The majority of the residents are independent workers that sell and raise small animals and some of them also work in agriculture. Miriam lives in the district of Cayaltí, in the department of Lambayeque. She has all of the basic utility services. All of the families in the area live with these conditions.

The commercial activity that Miriam works in is raising and selling domestic fowl. She raises them in corrals outside her house. Miriam has had 11 years of experience, which has allowed her to maintain her established clients in this business. She sells her animals to the wholesalers in the area. Her husband helps her in her business.

Miriam is currently proposing to increase the number of animals she raises and sells because this is a very profitable business in the area. This is why she is requesting a new loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1,500 nuevos soles (PEN), which will be used to buy feed and fix her corrals. Over time, this will allow her to improve her family’s quality of life.
