A loan of $375 helped to buy balanced animal feed.


Jose Manuel's story

José Manuel is 43 years old and lives with his children in the District of Nueva Arica. This community is known for having large deposits of sand, stone, and gravel. As a result, the area provides construction jobs. The topography is flat since it lies at the foothills of the Andean mountains. The people in this area engage in agriculture, trade, and livestock breeding. This area is located an hour away from the city of Chiclayo, which is on the northern coast of Peru.

José Manuel raises domesticated animals such as ducks, chickens, and guinea pigs from his home. He has many years of experience and his children help with the work. José Manuel is requesting a loan of 1,000 PEN from Edpyme Alternativa in order to buy balanced feed for fattening his animals. This will result in better production so that he can offer animals to his customers, thereby generating more income for his family.
