A loan of $725 helped to buy merchandise for her store.


Elsa's story

Elsa is 51 years old and a single woman. She lives in her own house in a rural part of the Motupe district. This region is located an hour and a half away from the city of Chiclayo. She does not have basic services like water or electricity. For more than six years, she has had a small store located in her home. She offers her neighbors a lot of products for daily use like soft drinks, groceries and basic needs products. She wants to expand her business with the purchase of more merchandise. For this reason, she thought it would be a good idea to request a loan for 2000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa. She is grateful to the Kiva lenders for their support in growing her business and profits.
