Dolores's story

Dolores is a 55 year old lady who lives with her husband in her own home, located in the rural area of the Pomape settlement, part of the Monsefú district, 20 minutes from the Chiclayo Province. They don’t have any children. This area is known for its agriculture, livestock, and arts. Dolores sells vegetables in the Monsefú district market, and has been doing so for 20 years. She is well known and has regular, steady customers. This allows her to continue growing her income to improve her quality of life. Dolores will use the money from this loan for 2,000 PEN through Edpyme Alternativa to buy more food products, not only vegetables, but also fruits. This way she will have more income in the future and will be able to pay the household expenses and help her husband develop as a farmer. Dolores is a woman with many aspirations. Among them is that, through her work and effort, she will be able to have a large stall in the market and also be able to have a brick home built.
