Sebastiana's story

53-year old Sebastiana lives with her two children in the warm climate of the community of Pucará, about two hours from the town of Jaén, in the Cajamarca region of Peru's north coast. The local people grow fruit, coffee, and cocoa.

With help from her children Sebastiana raises and sells pigs, chickens, turkeys and ducks in Chiple. She is seeking a loan of 3000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa to buy young animals, fatten them, and then sell them for a good price. She will earn income to provide her with a better standard of living.
