Carlos's story

Carlos is 67 years old, married and has 2 children. He lives in his own home, located in a rural area of the Mórrope district. Most of the populated areas of this distrcit are considered to be rural with high rates of poverty. Its quality of life is precarious and limited. In the area where Carlos lives, the residents have potable water, but no electricity.

Carlos sells animals, especially cattle, pork and goats. He raises them in pens located behind his house. He learned this activity from his parents several years ago and he knows the business perfectly. He sells in the towns of Mórrope and also makes deliveries from his home. During all this time, Carlos has acquired regular customers for his business. He also makes additional income with agricultural products..

Carlos wants to acquire balanced feed so that his animals can develop properly and be sold at a better price. For this, he is asking for a loan of 1000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa.

Carlos is a very responsible and hardworking person. Where he lives, his neighbors give very good references for him. He has had a loan from Kiva before. He is very grateful to the people that cooperate with him with this opportunity, since they have allowed him to make improvements on his home.
