Blanca Ysolina's story

Blanca, 28, is single and lives with her family in Mochumí district, a farming area belonging to Lambayeque province, located over half an hour away from the city of Chiclayo.

For about a year she has been selling fruit in a stand in her local market. The business idea arose because she wanted to have a stable source of income both for her personal expenses and to help with family support. The business is well received because the market where she sells her products is frequented by people living in the rural areas of the district.

Blanca wants to expand her business buying more products so that sales and profits will increase. Thus she has deemed it advisable to request her first, 2000 new sol, loan from Edpyme Alternativa.

Blanca is a cheerful young woman with a kind attitude. Her greatest wish is to continue growing as a businesswoman and to gradually enlarge her sales stand.
