Esther's story

Esther, 37, is married and lives in her mother's house in the Cayaltí district. The area, located an hour from the city of Chiclayo, has experienced commercial growth in recent years.

Esther has worked for 10 years raising and selling animals. This job gives her additional income to pay for her family expenses. She raises small animals in corrals located behind her home. When the animals have reached a good level of development, she sells them to the buyers who regularly visit the area. Her husband works repairing bicycles.

Esther wants to buy more animals to raise and then sell, so she has requested a loan for 1000 nuevos soles [PEN] from Edpyme Alternativa to help her achieve her goal.
