Maria Marleny's story

Maria is 41 years old, she lives with her partner and she has one child. She has her own house in the small village of Chilcal which is in the district of Oyotún, in the province of Chicalayo, in the Lambayeque region on the North coast of Peru. This small village is known for raising and selling barnyard animals, which are sold to locals and buyers from Cayalti. Maria makes a living by raising and selling barnyard animals such as ducks, chickens and guinea pigs. She is asking for a loan from Edpyme Alternativa to improve the animal pen and to buy animals to achieve a higher income and a larger profit, which will improve the quality of life for her and her family.
