A loan of $375 helped to stock more cosmetics so that her customers can quickly buy what they need.


María Paulina's story

María Paulina is 50 years old, married, and lives with her husband and children in the district of Cayaltí, an agricultural zone with a lot of commercial activity. They live an hour from the city of Chiclayo.


For more than three years she has worked selling beauty products and cosmetics through a catalog. She depends on a group of customers who frequently buy her products. The more orders she fills, the more business points she earns from the beauty company and this leads to higher earnings. For this reason, María always works to get more customers.


María desires to have a stable capital to buy more products and have a fixed stock of cosmetics so that her customers can quickly purchase what they need and not have to wait until the end of the month when she delivers their orders. This is why she has asked Edpyme Alternative for a loan of 1,000 nuevos soles that will help her achieve her goal.
