Jesús María's story

Jesús María is 50 years old, married and lives with her husband and two children in the agricultural district of TambogranD., an area with a semi-tropical climate which mainly produces mangoes, lemons and passion fruit. It is located in Piura province, more than four hours from the city of Chiclayo, capital of Lambayeque region.

Jesús sells drinks from her home. She sells soda and beer to her neighbors. As she has been running her business for several years and she always works hard to proviD. good-quality products, her customer demand is quite stable. She uses the profits she makes from this activity to help her husband support their family financially.

Jesús would like to acquire more drinks to satisfy her customers since her demand usually rises during the summer season. For this reason, she is requesting a loan for 2,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa to help her achieve her goal.
