A loan of $1,550 helped to buy balanced feed, and install a floor in a room in his home.


Santos's story

Santos is 53 years old and lives with his partner in their own home, located in the rural settlement of Lagartera, in Mórrope, a rural area which is part of the province of Lambayeque, and is located approximately one hour from the city of Chiclayo. Santos has been buying and selling smaller animals for 15 years. He fattens them, and when they reach their ideal size and weight, sells them in the local market to merchants who visit his area. As well, he works as a day laborer on farms, makes adobe bricks, and builds houses from local materials. Santos wishes to buy food for his animals, and also to install a floor in a room in his home. This is why he has felt it necessary to apply to Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 4000 nuevos soles. Santos has enough livestock to meet the demand in this Christmas season.
