A loan of $375 helped to buy balanced feed and install roofs on her corrals to improve her business of raising and selling animals.


Dora Lorena's story

Dora is a 20-year old mother who lives with her husband and small child in one of the rural zones that comprises the agricultural district of Tambogrande. This area is known for its mango and lemon production, and the majority of its population centers lack even basic public utilities. In the case of the town of Dora, there is only the service of electricity. She has dedicated herself to raising sheep, pigs and fowl for more than five years. She has pens installed at her house, where she keeps her animals and feeds them grains and natural grasses. When they have reached peak growth, she offers them for sale at the local market. Dora wants to buy balanced feed so that her animals develop better. She also wants to put roofs on her corrals given that the zone is very sunny, which is harmful, and some of her animals died. To meet her objective, she has decided to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1000 Peruvian soles. She has already had loans with Kiva, and is very grateful to the people who collaborated with her in that opportunity. She gives thanks in advance to those individuals who may help her again this time.
