A loan helped Purchase of coffee by catalog to expand her business.
Rosa María's story
Since six months ago she sells manufactured coffee by catalog. Every day she covers Cayaltí town and the surrounding hamlets offering her product. She tells us that this initiative was born because her husband works as a public transport driver and his income is not enough to cover the expenses of the family.
Her daily effort is bearing fruit and the number of her clients is increasing. Rosa wishes to purchase her own stock of coffee and to be able to guarantee her clients her immediate attention but she lacks the necessary capital to achieve her goal, so she finds herself for the first time in the position of having to ask a credit of 1,000 PEN from Edpyme Alternativa [Edpyme Alternative].
Her greatest wish is to see her older son study a professional degree with which he can be assured of a prosperous future. She is a kind woman, charismatic, and very dedicated to her work.
