A loan of $750 helped to buy balanced animal food in order to improve his business of rearing and selling animals.

Irvin's story

Irvin is 21 years old, single, and lives with his parents in the Tambogrande district, a district within the province of Piura. This area is characterised by the fact that most of the people in the area cultivate fruit.

Irvin raises sheep, which he keeps near his house. He fattens them with a balanced diet and when they are sufficiently developed, he sells them to his neighbours or to the merchants who come to the area. This work makes it possible for him to help with his family's daily needs.

Irvin always works hard to help his family get ahead, and his efforts always pay off, as his business is growing and in higher demand. At present, he would like to buy more balanced food for his flock, and for this reason he felt it advisable to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 2000 new soles, which will help him to achieve his goal.

Irvin has already received a loan through Kiva and it helped him a lot. As such he is very grateful to the people who collaborated with him on that particular opportunity. He would like to thank in advance the people who will work with him on this loan.
