María Elizabeth
María Elizabeth is 25 years old, single and lives with her parents in the area of El Cardo of the city of Tongorrape, an agricultural zone in the district of Motupe, located an hour and 40 minutes from the city of Chiclayo. She has made a living for the past four years selling groceries out of a small convenience store installed in her home. The business started out of the necessity to find an activity to generate income to solve personal expenses and support her family, whose finances depend on agriculture, which isn't permanent income. At her small business, she offers all kinds of snacks and drinks to her customer. This is very useful to her neighbors since the area is located a little ways outside of the city. She prefers to buy products in small quantities and always travels to the city of Chiclayo to stock her business with fresh products. The business has been well-received, and she wishes to expand it by purchasing a wider variety of groceries. For this, she has requested for the first time from Kiva partner Edpyme Alternativa a loan of 1500 soles to achieve her objective. María Elizabeth is a very reliable person who is devoted to her family. Her goal is to keep supporting her parents. She is very highly regarded by people who know her and her neighbors.

María Elizabeth tiene 25 años de edad, es soltera y vive junto a sus padres en el sector El Cardo del caserío Tongorrape, una zona agrícola del distrito de Motupe, ubicado a una hora y cuarenta minutos de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Se dedica desde hace cuatro años al comercio de abarrotes en una pequeña bodega instalada en su domicilio. El negocio nació de la necesidad de contar con una actividad que le genere ingresos para solventar sus gastos personales y apoyar al sostenimiento de su familia cuya economía depende de la agricultura, una actividad que no genera ingresos permanentes.

Ella ofrece en su pequeño negocio todo tipo de golosinas y bebidas a sus clientes, este negocio es de mucha utilidad para sus vecinos ya que la zona queda un poco alejada de la ciudad, ella prefiere comprar productos en pequeñas cantidades y siempre viaja a la ciudad de Chiclayo para surtir su negocio con productos frescos, el negocio tiene bastante acogida y ella desea ampliarlo con la compra de una mayor variedad de abarrotes, por ello se encuentra solicitando por primera vez a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 1500 nuevos soles que le permitan lograr su objetivo.

Maria Elizabeth es una persona bastante confiable y entregada a su familia. Su anhelo es seguir apoyando a a sus padres en lo que la necesiten. Ella es muy estimada por las personas que la conocen y por sus vecinos.
