Paula Carmela
Paula is 41 years old and is a single mother who lives with her 6 year-old son in the Macabi area of Paiján district, in the Ascope province of the La Libertad region, located 3 hours from the city of Chiclayo.

In her house she has set up an office supply store where she offers photocopying, typing, and internet search services. She tells us that she started out selling printer paper, encouraged by some mothers in the area, since her house is located close to a school in the neighborhood. Gradually she expanded her business, and now her business is widely accepted by the community, especially during the school season, which goes from March until December.

Paula wishes to increase her business by purchasing school supplies, but she does not have sufficient capital to do this. For this reason she has seen the necessity of requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 1,500 Peruvian soles.

She is a mother who is a fighter, and is enterprising and hardworking. Her main wish is to furnish her young son with a quality education that will guarantee him a prosperous future. She has worked previously with our institution, and has demonstrated punctuality and responsibility in making her payments.

Paula tiene 41 años de edad, es madre soltera y vive junto a su hijo de seis años de edad en el sector Macabi del distrito de Paiján, provincia de Ascope en la región La Libertad, ubicado a tres horas de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Tiene instalada en su vivienda una librería en la ofrece servicio de fotocopias, tipeos y búsqueda de trabajos en internet. Ella nos comenta que empezó vendiendo papel bond animada por algunas madres de familia del lugar, ya que su casa queda cerca al colegio de la zona. Poco a poco fue ampliando el negocio y ahora este goza de mucha acogida, sobretodo durante la temporada escolar, que va desde el mes de Marzo hasta Diciembre.

Paula desea ampliar su negocio con la compra de útiles escolares, pero no cuenta con el capital suficiente para realizar esta acción, por este motivo se ha visto en la necesidad de solicitar a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 1500 nuevos soles.

Ella es una madre luchadora, trabajadora y emprendedora. Su mayor anhelo es otorgarle a su menor hijo una educación de calidad que le garantice un próspero futuro. Ella ya ha trabajado anteriormente con Nuestra Institución y ha demostrado puntualidad y responsabilidad al momento de asumir sus cuotas.
