A loan of $375 helped to purchase merchandise.


María Gladys's story

Maria is 43 years old, married, and she lives with her family in the community of Vallecito, located in the district of Tambogrande, an agricultural region situated in the Province of Piura and the region of the same name. It is more than four hours from the city of Chiclayo, capital city of Lambayeque. She has a convenience store installed in her house. There she sells to her neighbors various products of daily use, basic needs products, and groceries. Her business is a few years old and today she has a steady and loyal clientele. Thanks to this business she has been able to help her husband support the family and to come through during all this time. Maria wants to expand her business with the purchase of more merchandise in order to satisfy the demand of her clients. For this reason she has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) for a loan in the amount of 1000 nuevos soles.
