A loan of $600 helped to purchase animals for later sale.


Herlinda's story

Herlinda is 41 years old, married, and has two children. She lives with her family in the Cayalti district about one hour from the city of Chiclayo. She has worked raising and selling small animals for five years. She feeds them so they grow and fatten, and when they are at the ideal weight and size, she sells them to merchants and at the market in her area. Herlinda works hard every day together with her husband so that their income can give the best to their family. Herlinda wants to continue growing, so she has decided to request a loan of 1500 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa. This money will allow her to purchase more animals for later sale. Herlinda has good personal references from her community.
