A loan of $375 helped to buy supplies to expand her business selling meals.


Zenaida Rosana's story

Zenaida is a 44 year-old mother who lives with her family in the city of Lambayeque. This is quite a commercial area which is located more than twenty minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

Zenaida has an establishment in her home where she sells meals every day. Her main customers are local students and workers. She also complements her business with a small sales stall where she sells candy. Her business is very popular owing to the good taste of her food and the good service which she provides. She uses the profits she makes from this business to help her husband support their family financially.

Zenaida would like to expand her business, acquiring more supplies so that she can prepare more meals and make more profits on her sales. For this reason, she is requesting a loan for 1,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa that she will use to achieve her goal.
