A loan of $1,550 helped to buy a motorcycle taxi.


Juana's story

Juana is 36 years old, is in a civil union and lives with her family in Lambayeque. Her community is located in a rural area where the main activity is agriculture. It is locate more than 20 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

Juana makes her living just as the majority of her community, raising and selling animals. She raises the animals behind her home. She fattens them up and when they reach the ideal weight and size, she sells them in the area market where other venders go as well. With the income she makes she covers her and her family's expenses. She also works in the fields and receives pay as a day laborer as well as selling the eggs from her animals.

Juana wants to improve her quality of life and that of her family by selling more. This is why she wants to buy a motorcycle taxi that will help her in transporting her animals and especially the eggs that she sells. As a result she believes it would be a good idea to take a loan of 4,000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
