Martín's story

Martín is 33 years old, married, and doesn't yet have any children. He lives in his own home along with his wife. The neighborhood in which he lives is one of those that makes up the rural area of the district of Mórrope. Though in this zone they now have water and electricity, the community continues to be very traditional and humble, just as the zones nearby are.

Martín has been a grower and salesman of animals for the past ten years. He raises his animals in corrals located on his property, and when they have grown to a good size, he offers them for sale to the buyers in his area and in the largest market in the city of Chiclayo.

His specialty is the raising of turkeys, with which he is able to get sufficient earnings when he sells them, and he also works as a farmer, since he has a small amount of land on which he grows various grains and a variety of vegetables twice a year.

He is asking for a loan from Edpyme Alternativa of 4,000 Soles, which he intends to invest in buying birds to sell, balanced feed for his birds, pigs, and also to begin the planting of his small plot of land (the planting of various vegetables, which he will be able to harvest quickly).

With this addition, he will become a better businessman and be able to improve his quality of life. Martín is thankful for the helping hand of the people who are supporting him with this current loan.
