A loan of $575 helped to stock her corner grocery.


Olga's story

Olga, 50, is an enterprising woman. She has 4 children, all independent now, and lives in a tiny, rural town in Morrope, a district in Chiclayo province. The town where she lives is very small, with only a few people, most of whom make a living from farming and raising livestock.

Olga operates a small grocery from her house, selling the kinds of everyday products that local people need from day to day. She earns extra money with a sewing business and she is known in the neighborhood for the quality of her work. Her neighbors know, too, that they can count on her in a pinch. She has operated the business for 7 years. She started it because she was single and needed an income.

Olga is applying to Edpyme Alternativa for a 1500 new soles loan that she will use to stock her grocery.
