A loan of $375 helped to increase her fixed stock of cosmetics.


Maria Elena's story

María Elena, 51, is married and has three children. She lives with her family in the Saltur sector, a rural zone in Zaña district. Its residents are mostly farmers and it’s located half an hour from the city of Chiclayo.

She sells beauty products and cosmetics by catalogue. She has a group of regular customers that buy her products frequently. The more orders she gets the more points she earns from the firm that supplies the products thus greater profits. This is why she always strives to increase the number of her customers.

María wants to have stable capital to acquire more products and expand the fixed stock of cosmetics she has at home. This allows her customers to get the products they need quickly without having to wait until the end of the month which is when her orders are delivered. To reach this objective, she has asked Edpyme Alternativa for a 1000 new sol loan that will help her reach her goal.
