A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a motor taxi.

Rosa Elvira's story

Rosa is 27 years old and lives with her husband and her son in the house of her parents-in-law. The house is connected only to electricity and is located in the rural area of the district of Olmos in the department of Lambayeque. The area is known for farming and cattle rearing.

For three years Rosa has been selling flowers. Her business is strategically located in front of the cemetery in her village. She has a regular clientele and the income from the business is sufficiently high for the daily household expenditures.

Rosa came to the microfinance institution Edpyme Alternativa and applied for a loan of 3000 new soles to buy a motor taxi. Her husband will drive the taxi and have an additional income. The profit will enable them to quickly pay the loan installments and improve their quality of life. Rosa is a responsible woman and enables her family to progress gradually thanks to her hard work and sacrifice.
