Rosa Marlene's story

Rosa is 33 years old. She lives with her partner and has two children. She lives in her own home which is located in the small village of Vallecito, in Tambogrande district. Rosa lives in the rural part of this district and the only basic service she receives is electricity.

Rosa has 1.0 hectares of farmland where she grows lemons that she harvests weekly. She also raises sheep and farmyard birds. She puts a lot of work into her businesses and has more than eight years experience. Her partner supports her in her work. Rosa has requested a loan for 3,000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa to maintain her lemon crop, fertilizing, pruning and weeding. She will also buy feed for her sheep and turkeys. This will enable her to achieve a better yield from her lemons and increase her number of animals. This will make her better income and she will be able to continue growing her business.
