Rosa Amelia's story

Rosa Amelia is a 60-year-old mother. She is widowed and lives alone since her children are independent. Rosa Amelia has her own home in the District of Pítipo and receives electricity. The people who live in this district are known for having businesses related to agriculture and livestock breeding.

Rosa Amelia has worked as a farmer for some time. She has her own land where she grows rice. When it is time to harvest, she sells the rice to the grain mills for processing and resale. This product is widely consumed by everyone in the area as part of the daily diet. With the earnings she generates from the sale of her rice, Rosa Amelia is able to improve her quality of life.

She is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 3000 PEN so that she can buy fertilizers to apply to her farmland. This will ensure good rice production, which will help her command a higher price at the market. As a result of increasing her income, Rosa Amelia will be able to repay her loan and cover her personal expenses.

She is a hardworking woman. Despite her advanced age, Rosa Amelia always thinks about improving each day.
