A loan of $725 helped to purchase more goods for her general store.


Zoila Elizabeth's story

Zoila is a 50-year-old single woman who lives in a house with her elderly father in the La Matanza district of the Morropon province, located some 4 hours away from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the Lambayeque region.


For two years, Zoila has been running a small general store from home. There, she sells a variety of daily consumption products, like basic need items and other goods. Zoila is very well-known in the area and has a solid client-base. With this business, she can cover both her personal and her family expenses.


She would like to invest in her business and increase her inventory. For this reason, she thinks it is opportune to request a 2,000.00 PEN loan from Edpyme Alternativa. Zoila has good personal and work references. She is a returning client of Edpyme Alternativa's and has fulfilled her prior commitments punctually. Her greatest wish is to keep generating good profits so that she can continue to look after her elderly father. She is grateful to the Kiva lenders for their support in helping her expand her business.
