A loan of $725 helped to repair rain damage to her house.

Virginia's story

Virginia, 35, lives with her husband and children in the Lagunas settlement in Mórrope district, a district known for having most of its residents in rural areas that are quite separated from each other. Its principal commercial activities are farming and cattle-raising. It is part of Lambayeque province and it is located an hour and fifteen minutes away from the city of Chiclayo.

For over three years she has sold basic needs items and groceries in a store set up in her home. She tends to the needs of her customers who always visit her establishment looking for items of daily consumption that they can’t get conveniently because they are so far from the town of Mórrope. The store provides income that helps her husband support the family because his earnings as a farmer aren’t reliable.

Their home has been adversely affected by the rains that occurred these past few months. She wants to repair the damages so that they can live more securely. She also wants to invest part of the funds purchasing some stock items for the store. To reach these goals she has called upon Edpyme Alternativa to request a 2000 new sol loan.

Virginia is dedicated to her family and always strives to help them get ahead in life. She has collaborated with our institution in the past and has shown herself to be responsible and punctual with her repayments.
