A loan of $550 helped to buy beer to expand her business during the summer season.

Gabriela's story

Gabriela is 28 years old, single, and lives with her mother and her 2 minor siblings in the city of Piura, located 3 hours from the city of Chiclayo.

Her mother is separated, and in order to meet her family's needs she had to start a business selling beer in order to contribute to the economic resources of the household. She sells beer from her home to her neighbors and customers. Her products are most in demand during the weekends.

Gabriela wishes to expand her business with the sale of more beer. This product is most heavily consumed by her neighbors during the summer season; during these months (Dec. - March) the Piura region has very high temperatures. For this reason, she is requesting a loan for the first time from EDPYME ALTERNATIVA for 1,500 Peruvian soles.

Gabriela is a very hardworking and responsible young woman. Her greatest dream is to become a beer distributor.
