Juana's story

Juana is 56, and lives with her family in her own house, which only has electricity. It is located in the rural area of Cayalti district in Chiclayo province. This is an area of farming and livestock-raising.

Juana has a business selling food in the street. Her food stall is in an area much frequented by local people. She has been doing this for a few years and has her own clientele. Her stall is known for its cleanliness and the good flavor of the food. With the income she receives, she will be able to have a better quality of life.

She has applied to Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1500 nuevos pesos to buy ingredients and utensils for her business. This will enable her to continue offering good service to her customers, and cover her household expenses with her earnings. With her hard work and her desire to get ahead in life, she has won the trust of her customers. Her aim is to someday have a large business where she can offer all types of food.
