A loan of $550 helped to stock more beer to meet her customers' demand.

María Julia's story

María Julia is 67 years old, married, and has four adult children. She lives with her husband in the district of Picsi, an agricultural area located 20 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

She has been selling beer from her house for over 15 years. Her business is rather well known in the area because of how long she has been doing this work and for the good treatment she shows her customers. With the income provided by this business, she is able to help her husband with meeting their household expenses.

María hopes to stock more beer to meet her customers' demand during this time of year. This is why she decided to request a loan of 1,500 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
