Juana's story

Juana is 47 years old, she is a widow and she lives together with one of her daughter in the fishing district of San Jose. It is a region within the province of Lambayeque, more than twenty minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

For the past 5 years she has been selling general store products, clothing items, and grocery store items from a store located in a section of her home. She values her business very much because she is able to cover her expenses and she is able to provide for her family. Juana is a woman that has demonstrated to be an optimist in the face of adversity, always willing to do all she can to make it through. Her husband was a fisherman but he passed away along with other fishermen in an accident in the high seas.

She has earned on a stable client base who always patronize her to purchase the products in her store, especially for the excellent customer service. She wishes to keep growing as a small business owner. To reach her goal she wants to expand her general store and meet the client demand. She has requested a first time loan of Edpyme Alternativa for a loan in the amount of 1000 nuevos soles.

Those who know her respect her and care of her very much. Juana is a very calm and honest person.
