A loan of $725 helped purchase basic need items and other provisions to expand her in-home general store.

Cruz Esperanza's story

Cruz Esperanza is a 33-year-old single mother with a small child. She lives in the El Huantaco hamlet, a rural community in the agricultural district of Tambogrande, a region where there is mainly fruit tree cultivation. This place is located in the Piura province, and is a part of the region that goes by the same name. It is located more than three hours from the city of Chiclayo.

She sells basic need items and provisions from home. This business allows her customers and neighbors to have easy access to daily use products, which is why she has a solid client base. She uses the profits earned from this business to cover her personal expenses and to support her young child.

She wishes to expand her business by purchasing more goods and increasing her stock, thus boosting sales. For this reason, she feels the need to request a 2,000.00 PEN loan from Edpyme Alternativa for the first time so that she can reach her goal.

Cruz is an honest and hard-working woman. Her neighbors and acquaintances in the area consider her to be a calm and trustworthy person. Her greatest wish is to be able to grant her child the opportunity to have a better quality of life.
