Petronila's story

Petronila is 28 years old. She is married and has a young child. She lives with her husband in the district of Ciudad Eten, an area which has become known for its production of handmaD. woven straw hats. The area is half an hour from the city of Chiclayo.

For more than five years, Petronila has worked selling fresh fish in the market of her district. She acquires her merchandise each day at the region's fishing terminal, and later she offers her products to neighbors in her area, who come to this supply center daily to acquire a range of everyday products. The income she receives from this work is used to help her husband, who is a civil construction laborer, to proviD. the family's economic support.

Petronila wants to expand her business by purchasing more fresh fish so she can satisfy her customers' demands. In addition, she would like to make some improvements to her home. For this reason, she has decided to request a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 2000 Peruvian new soles, which will help her achieve her goal.

Petronila is a woman with great charisma who always provides good service to her customers. People who know her consider her a very responsible and trustworthy woman.
