María Consuelo's story

María Consuelo is a 48-year-old mother who lives with her family in one of the settlements that make up the district of Pacora, an agricultural zone with steady commercial activity. It is located in the province of Lambayeque, approximately an hour from the city of Chiclayo.


She has a small grocery store in her house where she sells different everyday products to her customers, among basic household goods and groceries. The business is already four years old and during this time, she has always made an effort to provide her customers with good quality products and good service. Thanks to this, she currently has a stable and loyal clientele. The business allows her to help her husband with the family’s needs.


María Consuelo wants to obtain more goods to be able to expand her business and meet the demand that she has. For this reason, she is requesting a loan of 2,000 Peruvian Nuevos Soles (PEN) from Edpyme Alternativa that will help her to achieve her goal.
