Grimaneza's story

Grimaneza is 50 and lives in the hamlet of Guaraguaos Alto in the Tambogrande district with her three children. She is currently separated from her spouse. The zone where she lives is an agricultural zone that mainly produces mango, lemon and passion fruit. It belongs to the Piura province and is located in the region of the same name, more than three hours from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the Lambayeque region. Grimaneza sells basic staples and clothing items in a small store in her home. The business has allowed her to get her family ahead during this time. She makes an effort every day to make the store succeed, offering good service and quality products to her customers. Thanks to this, she has become known in the area and her establishment always has loyal customers. Grimaneza wants to expand her store with the purchase of more basic staples in order to increase her sales and make more income, which will allow her to get her family ahead. For this reason she has decided to request her first loan, 1000 soles, with Edyme Alternativa. She is a hard-working woman who gives all of herself to get her children ahead. Those who know her in the area where she lives consider her to be a calm and reliable woman.
