Liz Shirley's story

Liz is a 34 year-old mother who lives in a house with her sister and her children. The house has water and electrical service, and is located in an urban area in the Cayali district in the province of Chiclayo. This area is known for its agriculture and livestock production.

For a number of years, Liz has been selling groceries (all types of everyday consumer goods such as: milk, rice, cooking oil, sugar, toilet paper, tuna, eggs and other products), beans, cereals and drinks. Her business is located in a stall in the market in her neighborhood. With the earnings she gets from the sale of these products, she tries to cover all of her family's expenses.

In order to stock up her business she is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 2,000 Peruvian soles to buy more merchandise. She will use the loan for the sole purpose of expanding her business so that she can have more products to offer to her customers. With the money she earns, she will pay off the loan and pay for the household expenses. Liz is a dedicated and hardworking person who is concerned with providing more comforts and academic opportunities for her children.
