Faustina's story

Faustina is a 36-year-old mother who lives with her family in the Olmos district, an agricultural and commercial zone that is located in the Lambayeque province, almost two hours away from the city of Chiclayo.

She runs a general store from home, where she offers various basic need items, provisions, vegetables, and other perishable goods. Her customers choose her store because she always offers high-quality products and good customer service. This business allows her to help her husband maintain their household.

She also owns a motorcycle taxi--a motorized vehicle that consists of a motorcycle with a cab--which she uses for transporting passengers in her community.

Faustina would like to obtain more goods so that she can expand her business and meet customer demand. For this reason, she sees fit to request a 2,000.00 PEN loan from Edpyme Alternativa so that she can reach her goal.
