Esmilda's story

Esmilda is 34 years old, single, and lives with her family in the village of Cruce Nuevo Jaén in the District of Olmos. This agricultural area is part of Lambayeque Province and located two hours away from the city of Chiclayo.


Esmilda sells basic necessities and groceries from a store located in her home. There she offers her customers daily consumer products that she obtains in the town of Olmos. Her business has established customers who prefer the good service and high quality products that she offers.


Esmilda wants to expand her business by acquiring more products so that her business will grow and develop properly. Therefore, she is requesting her first loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1000 PEN to help her accomplish this goal.


Esmilda is a hardworking woman who is devoted to her family. Her greatest wish is to continue growing as a businesswoman and get ahead.
