Maria Ursula

Maria Ursula wishes to fulfill the constant orders that school season brings. For this, she has requested Edpyme Alternativa a loan of 1,500 new soles ($550) to buy an industrial sewing machine.

Maria Ursula has very good personal and professional references in her community. She is honest and hardworking. Her biggest dream is to give her family a better quality of life.
