Rosaura's story

Rosaura is a 52-year-old single woman who lives with her parents in the Quemazón settlement, a rural area in the Mórrope district of the Lambayeque province, located an hour away from the city of Chiclayo.

She has been selling vegetables, grains and pulses from home for several years. This business was born out of Rosaura's need to earn a living to help support her family and look after her parents' quality of life, as they are elderly. Concurrently, this business also helps her neighbors in the settlement since the city is far away and they do not have basic need items at hand.

Because the majority of the residents are farmers and receive their pay at the end of the week, she accepts both cash and credit for her goods. This system is having much success, so Rosaura would like to expand her business. For this reason, she is requesting a 1,500.00 PEN loan from Edpyme Alternativa, which she will invest in purchasing pulses and vegetables.

Rosaura is very well-known by her neighbors, who consider her to be a hardworking, responsible and trustworthy woman. Her greatest wish is to give her parents a better quality of life.
