Juanota Victoria's story

Juanita is 46 years old, widowed, and lives with her two children in the agricultural district of TambogranD., an area with a semi-tropical climate that mainly produces fruit such as mangoes, passion fruit and lemons. It is located in Piura region, more than four hours from the city of Chiclayo, capital of Lambayeque region.

Juanita's husband died last October and she has had to apply her ingenuity in order to get ahead. She moved to a smaller house so that she could rent out her own house and, with a few savings, she was able to set up a small grocery store in her new house. Juanita gives the best of herself in order to get her family ahead and she works with determination every day. Her business is growing thanks to her hard work and she currently has a loyal customer base.

Juanita would like to acquire more products so that she can expand her sales levels and make more profits that will allow her to continue getting ahead. For this reason, she is requesting a loan for 1,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa which will help her to achieve her goal.
