A loan of $375 helped ingredients for food production and sales.

Elva Del Pilar's story

Elva is 30, married with one child, and lives with her family in Nueva Arica, a district dedicated primarily to agricultura activities such as livestock and tobacco cultivation. It is located an hour and a half from the city of Chiclayo.
For three years she has made and sold food. She prepares food in her home and sells it to the agricultural workers who settle temporarily in the area. This activity has a lot of demand as she prepares her dishes with good seasoning. Her income allows her to help her husband with family costs.
Elva wants to acquire more ingredients to prepare more food and increase her sales. In order to achieve her goal she has requested her first loan of 1000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
Elva is a very responsible woman who lives her work. In her neighbourhood, her neighbours consider her to be a charismatic and trustworthy person.
