Hermes's story

Hermes is 34 years old and lives in his own house constructed of rustic materials. He lives with his wife and four children in the district of Sallique, a community dedicated to agriculture, trade, and raising livestock located in the province of Jaén, Cajamarca region, in the northern highlands of Peru. He earns his living breeding and selling cattle in the surrounding villages of his district. He has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 3,500 Peruvian soles to buy two cattle to fatten and sell at a higher price.
