Carmen's story

Carmen is 36 years old, single, and has no children. She lives at her mother’s house in the rural section of Tejedores Bajo in the District of Tambogrande. This farming district is located in the province and region of Piura and more than four hours away from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of Lambayeque region.


For the past three years, Carmen has been selling clothes and beauty products such as make-up and perfumes through a catalog. She sells her products from her home and some of her customers come from nearby villages to see her. Carmen already has an established customer base in the area.


She wants to invest her loan in the purchase of more merchandise so that she can increase her daily sales. With more income, Carmen will be able to cover her family’s expenses. To accomplish her goal, she is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1000 PEN.
