A loan of $375 helped to buy ingredients to prepare food.


Marilin's story

Marilin is a young 24 year old mother. She lives in her own house with her boyfriend and son in a small rural community that belongs to the district of Tambogrande – Piura. Marilin works making and selling chicken and sausage and fries and sausage. These small dishes are made with cut up hotdogs mixed with chicken or with french fries. She does this activity in her own house and serves her already established clientele on weekends. Marilin really wants to get ahead and that is why she is asking Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1000 nuevos soles, which she will invest in buying ingredients to make her food. Marilin is a client who is known to our agency. This would be her second loan and she paid off the first one on time.
