A loan of $725 helped to buy a photocopier for her business.


Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is 23 years old and the single mother of a small boy. She lives in her parents' home in Tambogrande district, Piura. Elizabeth is a woman who strives to improve the well-being of her son and has the constant support of her parents.

Elizabeth's business is selling food, juice, soda and candies from a kiosk located in her home. She is always serving her regular customers. Most of her customers are people who live in her community. They know her as an entrepreneurial woman who wants to help. Elizabeth has owned this business for three years and she feels very happy as it has brought her satisfaction.

Elizabeth would like to invest in her business and so she has requested a loan for 2,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa to buy a photocopier that she will set up in her kiosk. Elizabeth knows that there is a great demand for this service and so would like to have a machine available.

Elizabeth is an existing client of our institution who has repaid her previous loans properly.
