María Magdalena's story

María Magdalena is 51 years old. She is married and lives with her family in Olmos district, an agricultural area with a lot of commercial activity which is located in Lambayeque province, one hour and forty-five minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

María provides typing, copying, scanning and CD recording services from her home. She offers this service to the students in her area and to the general public. The public is usually loyal to her business and, during term time, her business is quite popular. She uses the profits that she makes from this activity to help her family get ahead financially.

María would like to improve her business, buying more material and having her equipment serviced. For this reason, she is requesting a loan for 2,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
