A loan of $600 helped to buy animals and feed to expand her business.


Martina's story

Martina, 45, and her husband live in one of the rural communities of the district of Lambayeque. The quality of life of the community is one of survival. Most of the workers are independent and involved in commerce and livestock farming. They also work as wage earners on other farms. This community is about 15 minutes from Lambayeque and is comprised of around 25 families.

The business activity she is involved in is raising and selling livestock, such as cattle and other small animals, including turkeys, ducks and chickens. She also has farmland where she and her husband grow crops, and she also sells milk. For 20 years she has worked in this trade.

Martina is requesting a loan in the amount of 1,500 PEN through Edpyme Alternativa which she plans to use to buy animals and feed to expand her business and increase her income. She is grateful in advance for the support she receives.
