Maria Mercedes
Mercedes is 31 years old. She is a single mother who lives with her two children in a house that her ex-husband left her before they separated. Her home has electricity but does not have piped water or sewerage services. It is located in Las Lomas district, in Piura.

Mercedes receives a monthly maintenance payment for her children. However, this is not enough to cover all of their expenses and, for this reason, Mercedes has a great desire to do better, for her children's sake. Six years ago, with a lot of effort, Mercedes set up a grocery store in her own home. She sells essential household products such as groceries (rice, sugar and oil). She serves in her store every day and has an established customer base.

Mercedes is requesting a loan for 1,200 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa which she will use to buy products for her business (mainly groceries). This will allow her to continue selling and earning money to meet her childrens' needs.

Mercedes would really like to increase her stock and thereby her sales so that she can continue growing in her business. She is very grateful for this loan.

Mercedes tiene 31 años de edad, es madre soltera y vive con sus 2 hijos en una casa que le dejo su ex esposo antes de separarse de ella. Esta vivienda cuenta con luz eléctrica pero no con los servicios de agua y desagüe y esta ubicada en el distrito Las Lomas en Piura.

Mercedes recibe mensualmente una pensión para sus hijos. Sin embargo, esto no le basta para todos los gastos y es por ello que Mercedes tiene muchos deseos de superación. Sobretodo por sus hijos. Hace 6 años Mercedes puso, con mucho esfuerzo, una bodega en su propio domicilio, Mercedes vende productos de primera necesidad así como abarrotes (arroz, azúcar, aceite). Ella atiende todos los días y cuenta con clientela ya conocida y establecida.

Mercedes solicita a Edpyme Alternativa un préstamo de 1200 nuevos soles que destinará en la compra de productos para su negocio (sobretodo abarrotes). Esto le permitirá a Mercedes seguir vendiendo y por lo tanto ganando para darle satisfacciones a sus menores hijos.

Mercedes desea mucho incrementar sus inventarios y por ende sus ventas para seguir creciendo con su negocio. Estaría muy agradecida con el crédito.
