Emelina is 33 years old, married, and has three children aged 12, 11 and 8 months. She lives with her family in her parents' home, in the city of Chiclayo, the capital of Lambayeque department.

Emelina's business is selling chicken in Santa Rosa market. She has been in this business for three years. She uses the income that she makes to financially support her family, improving their quality of life.

Emelina would like to expand her business by purchasing more chicken so that she can meet her customers' demand during this season. For this reason, she has requested a loan for 2,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
