A loan of $775 helped to purchase balanced animal feed.


Santos Humberto's story

Santos is 41 years old, married, and lives with his family in Zapotal Tabacal, a small rural community in the district of Túcume. This district is a good tourist destination because of the ancient ruins located there. Santos is a farmer and has also been raising and selling small animals for five years. He keeps them in the back area of his house, and when they reach a good stage of development he offers them for sale to the merchants that frequently visit the area. This business provides him with a stable source of income, which he uses to provide for his family. His spouse helps with home expenses by making and selling chicha. Santos wants to improve his animal raising by purchasing balanced feed, so that he can sell them at a higher price. In order to achieve his goal he has had to request a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 2,000 nuevos soles. Santos is a hardworking father and he always looks out for the development and welfare of his family.
