A loan of $725 helped to buy convenience store items and groceries to expand her grocery store.


Italia's story

Italia is 55 years old. She is married and lives with her family in Pacasmayo district, a commercial district which is located in the province of Pacasmayo, in La Libertad region, more than two hours from the city of Chiclayo which is the capital of Lambayeque region.

Italia sells convenience store products and groceries in a small grocery store which is located in her home. Her business is three years old and, thanks to her business, she has been able to help her husband to improve their family finances. She has loyal customers owing to the fact that she always offers them good quality products and kind service.

Italia would like to expand her business, buying more products so that she can increase her sales and make more profits. In order to achieve her goal she has approached Edpyme Alternativa to request a loan for 2,000 nuevos soles.

Italia is quite a hard-working woman who is always looking out for her family's well-being. Her greatest wish is to continue growing as a businesswoman and to get her family ahead in life.
