María Violeta's story

Maria Violeta is 45 years old, she is married, and she lives together with her husband and their children in the district of Eten, a region known for its merchants who produce their articles in a group. It is located half an hour from the city of Chiclayo.

Maria has a convenience store set up in her home. She offers her clients various types of groceries, snacks, and drinks. The business is three years old and during this time it has won a loyal client base. Her husband sells fish in the fishing district of the region. With both incomes they are able to financially support their family.

Maria wishes to expand her business with the purchase of more products, to satisfy client demand. She will see an improvement in her earnings. She has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) in the amount of 1000 nuevos soles.
