Maria Magdalena
Maria is 34 years old, married, and has a three year old daughter. She lives at home with her family in the District of Pimentel, which is approximately twenty minutes away from the city of Chiclayo. This small urban community has experienced recent growth.


For the past year, Maria has been selling food. Her aunt offered her a small space in front of her house which she turned into a makeshift diner. During the early hours, Maria goes to the wholesale markets in Moshoqueque and Modelo to buy the supplies for preparing ceviches and other Peruvian dishes. Her main customers are doctors and other hospital staff who work nearby. She also serves students who attend the two universities in her community.


At the moment, Maria only has three tables and a few wooden and plastic chairs. She wants to expand her facilities by purchasing more tables and chairs. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 800 PEN. Her greatest wish is to open a tourist restaurant. She is grateful to Kiva lenders for supporting the growth of her business.

Maria tiene 34 años de edad, es casada y tiene una hija de tres años de edad. Vive en casa con su familia en el distrito de Pimentel, a unos veinte minutos de la ciudad de Chiclayo. Su comunidad es pequeña, urbana y recién está en crecimiento.

Desde hace un año, se dedica a la venta de comida, ya que una tía le ofreció un pequeño espacio en la fachada de su casa, para que improvise un pequeño comedor. Desde muy temprano en el día, María va de compras a los mercados mayoristas de Moshoqueque y Modelo para comprar los insumos que le permitirán preparar cebiches y otros platos peruanos. Sus principales clientes son los médicos y otro personal del hospital cerca de su negocio y también estudiantes universitarios de las dos universidades en su comunidad.

Actualmente, María solo cuenta con tres mesas y unas sillas de madera y de plástico. Desea ampliar su mobiliario con la compra de más mesas y sillas. Por ello, ha creído conveniente solicitar a Edpyme Alternativa un préstamo de 800 nuevos soles. El más grande sueño de María es llegar a tener un restaurante Turístico. Ella agradece a los prestamistas de Kiva por apoyarla en crecer su negocio.
