Petronila's story

Petronila is 38 years old, married and lives with her family in the district of Monsefu, whose economy is mainly tourism and crafts. It is about 40 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

For over five years she has been selling fish at the Monsefu market. She has loyal customers and does business daily on a cash basis. She buys the fish at the Ecomprisa terminal and then sells it at the market.

Petronila wants to expand her business by buying fresh and salted fish from other fishermen in the area so she can lower her prices. To reach her goal she decided to apply for a loan in the amount of 2,000 PEN through Edpyme Alternativa.
