Leonor's story

Leonor is the mother of a family, 45 years old, and she lives at home with her two children. Their home is equipped only with electricity and it is located in the district of Tambogrande, at about 40 minutes of the department of Piura. This is an agricultural, farming, and artisan district.

For some time Leonor has been selling prepared foods and drinks from a stand she has in the central plaza of the district. She is open from Monday to Saturday and she has her own clientele. With the income she earns she is able to provide for all other needs.

When she saw an increase in clients she requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) in the amount of 1500 nuevos soles to purchase ingredients to prepare the different foods and drinks, and to purchase utensils to provide her clients with a better level of service. The increase in her profits will help her repay her loan and to improve the quality of her life. Leonor is a very hardworking and earnest woman. Her goal for the near future is to make her business progressively increase until it is the best in the region.
