A loan of $550 helped to buy beer and other beverages in large quantities.


Maria Elcira's story

María is a 50-year-old mother who lives in her own home with her two children. They receive all of the basic services. María resides in the urban section of Chiclayo Province. All of the residents in this area engage in retail, public transportation, and tourism.

María has been selling beer from her own shop for several years. She has more customers on the weekend because there are different events taking place, which allows her to increase her earnings and improve the quality of life for her family.

María is taking the opportunity to request a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1500 PEN so that she can buy large quantities of beer and other beverages. She hopes to generate more revenue and expand her customer base so that she can repay this loan and help her family move forward a little bit at a time.
