A loan of $900 helped to buy more fresh and salted fish.


Sabina's story

Sabina is 51 years old and single. She owns her own home which has water and electricity and is located in Monsefú district. The residents of this district work in farming, livestock raising and handicrafts.

Sabina's business is buying and selling fresh fish as an itinerant vendor in Moshoquque market. She has been in this business for many years. Tuesdays and Fridays are the busiest days in the market and her products sell quickly. The other days of the week, she also makes her sales in the different streets of the city of Chiclayo. Selling her products helps her to cover her daily household expenses.

Sabina has requested a loan for 2,500 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa to buy more fresh and salted fish. This will allow her to increase her income. She will use the money to repay her loan and improve her quality of life. Sabina's dream, for the near future, is to have her own stall in Moshoqueque market. She will achieve this with a lot of determination and hard work.
