Luzlinda's story

Luzlinda is 30 years old. She lives with her husband and her youngest child in their own home, located in a neighborhood within the district of José Leonardo Ortiz just a few minutes from the city of Chiclayo in the department of Lambayeque.

Luzlinda owns a small grocery store situated in her home. She attends to the store herself. At the store she offers her local customers an array of food products like sweets and sodas among other basics needs items and groceries. The business is very well received and through the business she helps her husband to financially support their family.

Luzlinda has experienced a lot of demand at her business and therefore she is thinking about expanding her business by acquiring more products. That is why she thought it was a good idea to request a loan of 2,000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa to achieve her goals.

Luzlinda is very well known and respected by the residents of the area she lives in. The people who know her consider her to be quiet and very responsible.
