Marcial's story

Marcial is 38 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and four children in the Muy Finca sector of the district of Mochumí, an agricultural area located in the Lambayeque province, an hour and a half from the city of Chiclayo.

For more than twelve years he has made dresses and blouses to sell to a wholesale merchant who makes orders from him seasonally. Additionally, he does farming activities. He raises and sells animals such as cows, sheep, poultry and pigs at his home. He also has a corn crop. He does all of these activities with responsibility and dedication, since his family depends on this support. His wife helps him sometimes.

Marcial wants to acquire fertilizer for his crop and also balanced feed for his animals. To do that he has decided to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 3000 nuevos soles to help him meet his goals.

He has had a loan from the Kiva Fund before. With the money from that loan, he was able to invest in his sewing business and thanks to that help it is going well for him. Marcial is grateful to the people who helped him at that time and he thanks the people who will support him at this time in advance.
