A loan of $925 helped to buy a refrigerator for her catering business.

Monica Elizabeth's story

Monica, 28, lives with her husband and children in her husband's parents' house. The house has basic services and is located in Tambogrande, a district in the Peruvian "departamento" of Piura. The local people make their living from farming, livestock-rearing and traditional crafts.

Monica has operated a catering business for 2 years, selling prepared food and cold drinks. She works in the evening, every day, at a spot in front of her house. She has a stand with a grill where she makes the food she sells. She has many regular customers and the income from the business helps to support her family.

Monica is applying to Edpyme Alternativa for a 2500 new soles loan that she will use to buy a refrigerator for keeping cold drinks, something that her customers always want. She will repay the loan from the extra income she expects to make. She wants her family to have a better quality of life and she works hard to meet her goals.
