Miriam Margot's story

Miriam, 44, is a mother who lives with her family in the Olmos district, a district known for having the majority of its clients concentrated in rural areas with much distance between them. The main economic activities in this area are agriculture and business. It belongs to the Lambayeque province and is located an hour and 45 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.
For over three years Miriam has sold school uniforms. She sells uniforms, jumpers, shoes and general clothing to her customers. Miriam offers her products according to the season and acquires her merchandise in the city of Chiclayo.
Thanks to the amount of time she has spent working in this sector, Miriam has gained loyal customers who have promoted her business, which has generated a growth in demand; so she has seen fit to buy more uniforms to expand her business and earn more income. For this reason, she is requesting her first loan of 2000 soles with Edpyme Alternativa.
Miriam is a hard-working person who is devoted to her family. Her greatest wish is to keep growing as a businessperson to be able to give them a better quality of life.
