Eulalia's story

Eulalia, 42, is separated and has four children who still live with her. She lives with her family in San Martín, a rural area of Tambogrande district, a farming district noted for its abundant fruit production that is usually exported to various countries. It’s part of Piura province located in Piura region over three hours from the city of Chiclayo, Lambayeque region’s capital.

She sells basic needs items in a grocery store located in her home. She stocks all kinds of daily use articles which they would have to go to the town of Tambogrande to get. This establishment is important for her family because thanks to it they are able to sustain themselves and get ahead. During the time it’s been in operation, Eulalia has worked hard to maintain it and has gradually expanded it.

Thanks to the good customer service she provides, she is well received. Eulalia would like to purchase more products so that she can continue to meet customer demand. In order to reach this goal, she needs to request a 2000 sol loan for the first time from Edpyme Alternativa.

Eulalia is quite a tenacious woman. She has learned how to get ahead and push her family to succeed even though she’s a single mother. She wants to continue to work to raise her children. In the area where she resides her neighbors and acquaintances consider her to be a levelheaded, responsible woman.
