A loan of $750 helped to buy more organic products and a photcopier.


Epifania's story

Epifania, 32, is single and lives in the house belonging to the person she works for; it has running water and electricity and is located in the Bambamarca District which belongs to Cajamarca Department. This zone is dedicated to farming and animal husbandry.

Epifania sells organic products, an activity she does alongside the job she has: she works as a domestic employee in a house in Bambamarca. She tries to earn income from both activities in order to cover her personal expenses.

She has asked Edpyme Alternativa for a 2000 new sol loan to buy more organic products and also a photocopier to start providing photocopying services since it’s a service that has no competition in the zone and she can earn higher profits to send to her parents who live in another city and also to repay her loan. Epifania is a hardworking, very enterprising woman who has managed to get ahead through her own efforts with the goal in mind of always doing better and helping her parents who are far away.
