Matilde Florentina's story

Florentina is 49 years old and she owns her own home, located in the region called Lagunas in the department of Lambayeque. It is located 40 minutes from the city of Chiclayo, in Peru's north. Florentina has a grocery store set up in her house and she manages the business herself. She offers essential needs products and general groceries for sale to her neighbors and clients in the region. The business enjoys a good demand especially because she has earned many years' experience. The increasing demand experienced by Florentina's grocery store has caused her to think about adding more inventory and new products in larger quantities. For this reason she has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) in the amount of 2000 nuevos soles. Florentina is a very hardworking woman of very good character. Those individuals who know her hold her in great esteem and care for her.
