A loan of $375 helped to purchase fresh fish.


Rosa Silvia's story

Rosa is 35 years old, she is single and she has a child who is in her care. She lives in an urban region, marginal to the city of Chiclayo. The city is very well known for its merchants and its transportation. The city is the capital city of Lambayeque.

For more than 10 years she has been selling fresh fish in the surroundings of the Modelo market in the city of Chiclayo (the largest market in the city). She acquires her products very early in the morning in the fishing district of the region. Rosa values her business as it is her way to support her daughter and be able to cover the family's expenses.

Rosa wishes to purchase more fish in order to expand her business and see an improvement in her sales. To this end she has requested a first time loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1000 nuevos soles.

Rosa is a very calm and enterprising person. In the district where she has her stand everyone knows her for her kindness and pleasant character.
