A loan of $775 helped to buy balanced feed for livestock.

Silvia Ines's story

Silvia is 59 years old. She lives with her partner and has one dependent child. She lives in her own home, located in Tambogrande district in Piura region, four hours from the city of Chiclayo.

The client lives in the rural part of this district and only has basic electricity service.

The work she does is farming and livestock-raising. She has more than 15 years experience managing her businesses: growing lemons and raising sheep, pigs and poultry. She looks after both using medium technology.

Her partner helps her in the work she does, as there is a strong family relationship that enables her to keep her business growing. She uses the income she earns to cover the household expenses.

Silvia is applying for a loan of 2,000 soles, which she will use to purchase balanced feed for fattening livestock. This way she will be able to sell them at a better price in the local market.

This investment will allow her to keep her business growing and so improve her quality of life.
