Maria Josefa
Maria is 36 years old, separated and has two children. She lives in her own home in the rural part of Lambayeque district in the northern part of Peru. Maria runs a small store out of her home. There she offers groceries and other basic supplies for sale to her customers. She has over two years of experience in the business, that is to say, she knows this line of business like the palm of her hand. She has an established customer base in the area. Additionally, she raises and sells poultry in the back part of her home. Once her animals have reached an appropriate level of development she offers them for sale to the merchants who frequently visit the area.

She wishes to use part of the loan to supply her store with more merchandise (groceries). The other part she will use to invest in her livestock. She hopes to make repairs to their corrals to provide better protection from the sun. She will also purchase more birds and buy them a balanced feed. To achieve her aims she felt it was advisable to seek a loan of 1,000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa. Maria has handled other loans from Edpyme Alternativa and made her payments promptly.
