A loan of $550 helped to buy animal feed.


Jesus Magdalena's story

Jesús Magdalena, 23, is single with no dependents. She lives in her father’s house in Buenos Aires district belonging to Morropon province located in Piura Region in northern Peru where the main activity is raising small animals for sale.

She’s an enterprising young woman with good personal references in the community where she lives. For the last year she’s been working raising and selling small animals from Carrasquillo to nearby hamlets so she now has regular customers in the zone. She also earns extra income working as a cleaning lady at the Salitral medical post.

She’s asked Edpyme Alternativa for a 1,500 new sol loan to buy nutritionally balanced animal feed to fatten them up and grow to be able to sell them at higher prices generating higher profits that way.
