A loan of $550 helped expand her business.


Yina Paola's story

Yina is a mother and is 26 years old. She lives with her family in the village of Bello Horizonte, in the agricultural district of Tambogrande, which is located in the Piura region, more than 4 hours from the city of Chiclayo, capital of the Lambayeque region.

She sells clothing and plastic goods. She has a small business at home where she offers her products to neighbors and customers who live in the area. Her business is well-received because of the quality of the products offered and the customer service she gives. With the income that this activity provides she takes care of supporting her family. Yina would like to expand her business by buying more merchandise to meet customer demand and further increase sales. This is why she thought it was a good idea to request a loan of 1500 new soles from Edpyme Alternative. She is a very responsible person and is very eager to get ahead.
