A loan of $600 helped to buy animal feed.


Yolanda's story

Yolanda, 44, is married living in her own house with her husband and children. The zone they live in is a settlement located ten minutes from the city of Lambayeque. Lambayeque Province is located twenty minutes from the city of Chiclayo. Her activity is raising animals to sell; she raises pigs, sheep, goats and barnyard fowl that she sells bi-weekly in markets in Chiclayo and Lambayeque. Yolanda raises her animals in corrals located in her yard. Her husband works in agriculture and with the income they both earn they try to move their family forward. Yolanda wants to buy nutritionally balanced animal feed so that she can earn higher income above all this season when sales increase due to the approaching Christmas festivities. To reach her objective, she’s thought it convenient to request a 1,500 new sol loan from Edpyme Alternativa. Yolanda has had previous loans through Kiva and was able to move her business ahead with them and used profits to do some home improvements. She’s quite grateful to the people who supported her on that occasion and gives thanks in advance to those who will help her now.
