Rebeca Orfelinda's story

Rebeca is 38 years old; she is married and has five dependent children. She owns a house located in the rural community CP 14, Las Lomas district, where she lives together with her husband, who also contributes with income and helps her with the farming activities.

Rebeca raises sheep, pigs and poultry, and she also grows lime in a 2-hectares parcel of land that has belonged to her for more than five years, and which she inherited from her father. The income she obtains is used for covering her expenses and those of her family.

She would like to invest in compost, herbicide and fertilizers for the maintenance of her lime trees and in balanced food for her animals. She has recently acquired a mototaxi in which she transports people. She has requested a loan of 1000 nuevos soles [PEN] from Edpyme Alternativa.

Rebeca wants to continue expanding her business and in this way, to improve her quality of life.
