A loan of $375 helped purchase of undergarment merchandise to expand the sales business.

Norma Esperanza's story

Norma is 47 years old, a single mother with one child. She lives in the Las Brisas sector of the city of Chiclayo, a city with a fair amount of commercial traffic and transportation.

For the last five years she has been making a living selling undergarments for women, men and children in her home. She gets her merchandise at the commercial centers of the region and sells it to her neighbors and acquaintances. Norma tells us that she started selling her products from orders and little by little has been able to get a repeat customer base that request the garments that she offers.

Norma wants to expand her business with the purchase of merchandise that will increase her sales and give her more profit, this is the reason for her loan request of 1000 new soles, the first one with Edpyme Alternativa.

She is a very go-getting woman. In spite of her being a single mother, she has been able to get ahead and now wants to continue working to improve her quality of life.
