Rosa Elena's story
Rosa is 56 years old. She is divorced and lives with her children in Olmos district: an agricultural area with quite a lot of commercial activity which is located in Lambayeque province, more than one and a half hours from the city of Chiclayo. Rosa is a very hard-working woman who has worked since she was a little girl. For the past eight years she has been selling beauty products such as cologne, perfume and make-up through a catalog. She visits her neighbors and friends and offers them her products for sale. When she started her business, Rosa only had samples and few products. Over the last 10 months, Rosa has been able to grow her business a little more because now she has a display cabinet for displaying her products. Rosa would like to invest her loan in her business so that she can acquire more products and increase her working capital. In order to achieve her goal she is requesting a loan for 1,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa. Rosa feels very happy for the trust that Kiva lenders and Edpyme Alternativa are placing in her and for the help that they are providing her with so that she can gradually improve her life.
