Maria Mercedes's story

Maria Mercedes is thirty-seven years old and lives with her children in the district of Oyotún, in a rural area where the population is dedicated to agriculture, commerce, and livestock. The district is located in the province of Chiclayo in the Lambayeque region, north coast of Peru.

For years she has made a living selling basic necessities, groceries, and hygiene products out of her home. Additionally, she rears and sells animals such as chickens and ducks.

The rainy season is approaching, and in order to provide greater security to her family and her customers, she wants to invest in construction materials to reinforce the roof of her house. To this end, she has applied for a loan of 1500 soles from Edpyme Alternativa.

Maria Mercedes is an honest and hardworking woman. She has good personal and work references. Her greatest desire is to provide her family with a better quality of life.
