A loan of $725 helped to buy fresh fish.

Rosa Haydee's story

Rosa, 25, lives with her children in her family’s home located in Santa Rosa district, a district that is part of the country’s coastal region whose economy depends primarily on fishing; it’s 25 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

For the last 9 years she has sold processed (dried and salted) fish at the ECOPHINSA fishing terminal, the region’s only fishing terminal. She buys fresh fish there and then has it processed at a local firm in order to sell it afterwards to merchants that come by to acquire merchandise for subsequent sale in markets throughout the region.

The business is quite well received in the area. The type of fish that she usually processes is ray and, due to the long time she’s been in business, she has a good client base of regular customers. Rosa wants to expand her business buying more fish so that her profits will increase. For this reason, she’s asking Edpyme Alternativa for a 2000 new sol loan.

Rosa is a hard-working woman who has always given all of herself to have her children succeed and to support her family. Her dream is to continue growing as a businesswoman so that she can provide her children with a good education. She has worked with us previously and has been punctual and responsible with respect to repayments.
