Maria Marleny's story

Maria is 26 years old, single and has no children. She lives in her parents' house in the district of Morrope in the province of Lambayeque, located in the north of Peru. She lives in the rural part of the district.

For three years, she has had a small grocery store in her home. There she offers diverse products of daily consumption for sale to her neighbors and customers from the area, including staple goods and groceries. Maria is very well known in the area and has an established clientele. She wants to stock her store with more merchandise so that she can increase her sales and income. For this reason, she has asked Edpyme Alternative for a loan of 2000 nuevo soles. With her income, Maria will be able to continue helping her parents with their family expenses.
