A loan of $350 helped to buy ingredients for meals preparation.


Elena's story

Elena, 63, lives with her granddaughter in the Paiján district, Ascope province, La Libertad region, which is 3 hours away from the city of Chiclayo. For over 20 years she has sold prepared meals. Seven years ago she relocated to the El Tambo market in Paiján. There, she offers her customers breakfast and lunch all week. This is her only source of family income. Demand for her meals has been growing in the past few months so she would like to enlarge her business. She has called upon Edpyme Alternativa for a 1000 new sol loan to be used to buy ingredients and raw materials to prepare more meals. Her greatest wish it to open a restaurant outside the El Tambo market. Elena has worked with our Institution on previous occasions and has demonstrated responsibility and honesty with respect to her repayments.
