A loan of $800 helped to purchase more groceries to stock her store.


Ascencion's story

Asención is 46 years old, single, and has her own home located in a rural area in the town of La Curva, and annex of Batangrande, about an hour and a half from the city of Chiclayo.

Asención raises young animals, mostly birds such as chickens, turkeys, and ducks. She also has a small grocery store located in her home where she sells honey. She has more than ten years of experience. In the village she has been able to maintain many loyal customers.

Asención wants to purchase more products (groceries) to stock her store and wax for her bee colonies. In this way, she can expand her capacity for purchasing and storage. Her number of customers has grown, so she is asking for a loan of 2200 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa to do everything she has proposed.

Asención is a hardworking woman who makes an effort every day to get ahead and have a better quality of life. The people who know her consider her a kind person who is always ready to help others.
