Dora's story

Dora, 49, has two minor children in her care. She lives in her own house with her spouse and children in Motupe District, Lambayeque Department. They have electricity and they get their water from artesian wells.

Dora’s main activity is raising turkeys, ducks, chickens, sheep and goats to sell. She feeds them nutritionally balanced feed (corn, ‘polvillo’ [made from rice], etc.) and when they reach exact size and weight she sells them to local wholesalers. She’s been in this line of work for ten years and she has well-established customers in the zone.

The amount of the loan granted will be 1500 new soles to buy turnkeys, ducks and chickens to have better income for her home and thus be able to improve her quality of life. She doesn’t have much competition in this line of work in the area because she already has a well-established clientele.
