Guillermina is 47 years old, married, and lives with her husband: her children already live independently. She lives in Nueva Arica district, an agricultural zone located one hour away from the city of Chiclayo, in the Lambayeque region. She has two auto rickshaws (vehicles that consist of a cabin attached to a motor scooter and that are used to transport passengers), which she uses to provide transportation in her district and the neighbouring areas. She has over 11 years of experience in this business. In the area where she lives, these vehicles are a popular choice for transportation, which means that demand is quite high. Guillermina wishes to buy a used auto rickshaw to increase her fleet and thus earn more money, and thus asked field partner Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 2,000 new soles that will help her attain this goal. She is a rather hardworking and dedicated woman. Guillermina thanks Kiva lenders in advance for their help.
