Giovany's story

Giovany is currently 24 years old and continues to live with her husband and young son in the village of Vallecito, a rural area in the farming district of Tambogrande, which is located in the region of Piura.


Giovany began raising and selling sheep a few months ago. She now has about 25 heads of sheep, which she keeps in a pen near her home. In addition, she continues to work with her husband on his lime plantation. The fruits are harvested in order to be sold to the local collection centers.


At the moment, Giovany wants to acquire a small extension of land that measures a half hectare. She wants to plant more lime trees so that she can increase her monthly income. In order to accomplish her goals, she is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 3,500 PEN. She already had a previous Kiva loan that was repaid on time. Giovany is very grateful to everyone who helped her on that occasion.
