Esperanza's story

Esperanza is 43 years old and she is a single mother of a little girl. Esperanza lives in her own home in the new district (a community of poor people whose homes are being constructed) of 9 de Octubre in the city of Chiclayo.

Esperanza has a beauty salon that she has in her house. It is located near the community market which is an advantage for her because it generates an affluence of clients and she also has steady clients.

On the weekends, from Thursday to Sunday, Esperanza works at a beauty salon in the city's downtown. This is an additional source of income for her. Her 10 years' experience have helped her see the fruits of her labor.

Esperanza is a client who has always worked with Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner). She started with small loans and through sound administration they have helped her business succeed. This loan will help her meet the demand of her clients.
