Aurora's story

Aurora, 42, lives with her family in a house of her own that has running water and electricity and is located in an urban part of Bambamarca District belonging to Cajamarca Department. This zone is noted for farming and animal husbandry.

Aurora has been selling tubers (potatoes in many varieties) for many years, a business she has in her local market. She tends to her business daily and has a regular clientele. Income obtained allows her to cover family expenses.

She has asked Edpyme Alternativa for a 3000 new sol loan to buy larger amounts of stock merchandise for her business to meet customer demand and also to do some home improvements. She will use profits from sales to repay the loan and improve her family’s standard of living.
