Francisca's story

Francisca is a 45 year-old mother who lives in her own home with her husband and their children. Her home has water and electrical services, and is located in the province of Chiclayo, an area characterized by its commercial activity, agriculture and tourism.

Francisca has set up a grocery store in her home where she sells basic consumer goods (milk, sugar, rice, soft drinks, all types of sweets, etc.) This allows her to have security and comfort, and makes it possible for her to attend to her customers at all hours. In her store, her customers find everything to meet their daily needs. With her business, she tries as much as she can to satisfy her customers and improve the quality of life of her household.

She is requesting a loan of 1,500 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa to stock her store with a variety of merchandise (groceries) so that she can satisfy the needs of her customers. Her goal is to increase her income so that she can pay off her loan and improve her business. Francisca is known in the neighborhood as a friendly person who is responsible and very hardworking, who is always striving to get ahead with her family.
