Esperanza Juliza's story

Esperanza is 41 years old, live with her partner, and has two minor children. She lives in her own house in the rural settlement of Eureka, which is part of the rural area of Lambayeque District. This is a small community with approximately 200 families.

The work Esperanza does is raising and selling animals. She has been doing this work for 20 years, in which time she has acquired quite a bit of experience and clientele. The business is located in her home. She learned this work from her parents, so she knows this line of work to perfection.

The income she earns from this work helps to cover her personal expenses and those of her family.

Esperanza has applied to Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 2000 nuevos soles, which will help her invest in doing finishing work on her pens, and putting a gate on her home. This business has competition, but also has a wide market to sell into.
