Elvis Arturo's story

Elvis is 21 years old, in a common-law relationship, and has two dependent children. He and his family live in their own home in the District of Nueva Arica in Chiclayo Province, which is part of the region of Lambayeque on the northern coast of Peru. Those who live in this district engage in agriculture, as well as raising and selling farm animals.

Elvis is a merchant who has been raising and selling domesticated animals for several years. He is requesting a loan for his business from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1,000 PEN so that he can invest in improvements to the pens where the animals are kept. As a result, he will achieve better results from his sales by commanding a higher price. This will increase his profits, improve his income, and eventually lead to a better quality of life for him and his family.
