Nelly Mirtha's story

Nelly is 38 years old, divorced and lives with her five children in her home in the village of Cruceta located 15 minutes from the farming district of TambogranD., a farming area in the Piura region, more than fours hours from the city of Chiclayo, capital of the Lambayeque region.

She has a small grocery store set up in her home. There she sells to her neighbors and customers from the area various everyday consumer products, such as essential products and groceries. Her business has been favorably received for 3 years, and additionally Nelly sells food. With these businesses she clears the financial expenses of her family.

Nelly wants to buy more products such as school supplies, groceries, chairs and tables for her small business. For this she thinks it best to request a loan of 1500 nueves soles from Edpyme Alternativa.

Nelly is quite a hardworking woman and of very good character, the people that know her think very highly and are very fond of her.
