Jossy Roxana's story

Jossy is 24 years old and has one child in her care. She lives in her family home together with her sister who works for a company. Their home is located in Castilla district and has basic services (water and electricity).

Jossy's business is making and selling food. She has been in this business for five years. Jossy prepares the food in her home and then sells it to the general public. She works every day and knows her business to perfection. She has an already established customer base in the area.

Jossy's business is very popular with her customers owing to the good flavor of her meals. She uses the profits that she makes from her business to help her family financially.

Jossy is requesting a loan for 1,500 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa and will use the loan money to equip her business with utensils and supplies for making her meals. In this way, Jossy will manage to meet her customer demand which has increased in recent months.
