A loan of $275 helped to buy articles of clothing.

Esperanza's story

Esperanza, 46, is a single mother. She has a daughter and they live together in Cayaltí district, an agricultural zone with moderate commercial activity located more than an hour away from the city of Chiclayo.

She sells women’s and men’s clothing. She gets her merchandise in the cities of Chiclayo and Trujillo to sell to her neighbors filling their previously-placed orders. The business is an important source of income for her family so she endeavors to manage it in the best possible way.

Her daily efforts to secure a larger number of customers have been having results. She wants to buy a larger quantity of articles of clothing in order to increase sales and meet growing customer demand. But, she lacks necessary capital to do so. Therefore, she has called upon Edpyme Alternativa for the first time to request a 700 new sol loan.

Esperanza is a hard working, responsible woman. Her greatest wish is to continue making progress with her business and to someday have a clothing store.

People who know her consider her to be trustworthy and calm.
