Elvira's story

Elvira, 53 years of age, is looking to take a new loan with Edpyme and Kiva following the success of the previous one. Her punctuality and responsibility have earned her the right to access a new loan. Elvira lives with her husband and children in her own home. It has only electrical service and is located in the district of Cayaltí, in the province of Chiclayo in Northern Peru. This zone is characterized by its commercial, agricultural and livestock activities.

For several years, Elvira has dedicated herself to raising and selling sheep. Indeed, this was the focus of her previous loan. Her corral is located outside her house and is appropriate and ample. She gives her sheep balanced feed and natural grasses for optimal growth to commercialize them. Elvira has now requested a loan of 4,000 PEN (soles) from Edpyme Alternativa to buy more animals and their feed and a mototaxi, which she believes will help her transport merchandise and perhaps diversify her income. With the income she obtains, she will cover needed improvements to her house.
