A loan of $750 helped to buy balanced feed for her small farm animals.


Doris's story

Doris, 38, is married and has four children in her care. Her loan for 2000 soles [PEN] shows her determination to continue expanding her business, given that she is not a client who already has had previous loans with Edpyme Alternativa.

She lives in her own house with her husband and her four children. The house is in Tambogrande, in the rural area of the district, but she has electricity. The activity she carries out is raising small animals (sheep, goats, turkeys, and chickens), which she sells in the local market when they reach the ideal weight and size. Doris has more than seven years of experience in livestock and it has gone very well for her. Customers prefer her animals because of the good care and breeding that Teresa gives them.

Additionally, she has other income from selling groceries. Doris is well known and has had loans previously through Kiva with this organization. She has very good references and a good payment record.
