A loan of $550 helped to expand her business.


Faustina's story

Faustina is 37 years old. She lives with her family in the district of Olmos, a highly commercial area that belongs to the province of Lambayeque. It is located more than 1.5 hours from the city of Chiclayo.

Faustina provides transport services via motorcycle taxi to neighbors and merchants in her area. She also has a small grocery store in her home. She sells a variety of basic products and grocery items to neighbors and other customers. Thanks to this business she is able to provide for her family.

She would like to grow her business since this is a very commercial area. She would then be able to make some improvements to her home such that her family would be able to live in better conditions. In order to do this, she has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for the first time, for the amount of PEN 1,500.00.
