A loan of $200 helped to buy a CPU that shell use in her word processing and printing business.

Luzmila's story

Luzmila, 44, is single and has a son in her care. She lives in her mother’s house located in José Leonardo Ortiz district which is about 20 minutes from the city of Chiclayo in northern Peru. It is a medium size community that was formed almost 6 years ago. It currently has electricity and potable water.

Luzmila has a small home-based grocery store. She sells a variety of daily use items, like first need and groceries, to her neighbors and customers from adjacent areas. In addition, she also has some booths with computers and Internet access that she leases out to her neighbors. She intends to use the loan to buy a CPU for one of her machines that will help her with her word processing and printing business. Because of this she thought it would be a good idea to ask Edpyme Alternative for a 500 new sol loan.
