A loan of $550 helped to stock her stall with more groceries.

Fredesvinda Felicitas's story

Fredesvinda is 48 years old, married and has 3 children. She lives in a marginal urban zone in the district of Pacasmayo, which belongs to the department of La Libertad, located 4 hours from the city of Chiclayo which is the capital of the department of Lambayeque.

For more than 15 years she has sold groceries and other basic necessities in a stall located in the market in her town. The income that she receives from her business helps to cover the costs of her family and give them a better quality of life. Fredesvinda wants to stock her stall with more groceries to later sell them and get greater income. This is why she has asked for a loan of 1500 nuevo soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
