Lorena Piedad's story

Lorena, who is 39 years old, is a single mother with a young daughter who is 2 years old. She lives in the district of Zaña, which belongs to the province of Chiclayo and the department of Lambayeque, respectively. Zaña is located about 45 minutes from the city of Chiclayo, and it is a thoroughly agricultural and livestock-raising zone. She has good references from the residents of the zone in which she lives. Lorena sells chicha de jora (Peruvian corn beer) and hamburgers. She has already had this business for approximately 2 years, and she has been running it efficiently since it provides sustenance for her and her daughter. Lorena, in her eagerness to continue serving her customers and to make her business larger every day, is applying to Edpyme Alternativa for a loan in the amount of 2500 PEN, which she will use to buy the ingredients that are used to produce chicha de jora. Lorena is a person who is well known for her good character and above all for her kindness in waiting on her customers.
