María Rosa's story

María Rosa is a 56-year-old mother who lives with her family in the district of Pacasmayo, a fairly commercial zone located in the La Libertad region, over two hours from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the Lambayeque region.

She runs a stand at her local market, where she offers her customers various groceries and animal feed. The business is twenty years old and, thanks to her loyal customer base, she is able to help support her family.

María Rosa would like to expand her business by acquiring more products that will increase her sales and income. She is requesting a 1500 PEN loan from Edpyme Alternativa to reach her goal.

She is quite a responsible and pleasant woman. People who know her have great respect for her.
