Leonor Isabel's story

50-year-old Leonor lives with her husband and son in her own home. The only service her home receives is water. It is located in the rural area of Lambayeque department. This area is noted for its farming, livestock raising and tourism.

For four years, Leonor has been selling groceries (milk, rice, oil, sugar, toilet paper, tuna, eggs), fruit, vegetables and drinks. She set up her business in her home for her own safety and convenience as she is able to serve customers whenever she likes. She uses the profits that she makes from selling her products to try and cover all her household's needs and expenses.

In order to stock her business, Leonor has requested a loan for 3,000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa to buy a larger quantity of merchandise. Her goal is to grow her business and have more products available to offer her customers. This will enable her to repay her loan and cover her family expenses. Leonor is a responsible and committed person who works so that she can have more things to offer her family. She also wants to improve her financial situation for the benefit of her family.
