Marisol's story

Marisol is 47 years old. She is a single mother and lives with her son who is financially independent. They live in her parents' home. Her parents are retired and receive a monthly pension from the State. Their home is located in the Santa Cruz squatter settlement, in Tambogrande district, in Piura province.

Marisol has a small grocery store where she sells basic household products such as rice, sugar, meat, etc. She has received support from her parents who gave her a space in which to set up her business. She has been working in this business for five years. She also receives help from her only son who supports her financially.

Marisol would like to buy beer to sell at weekends (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays). Her neighbors ask her for this product but, owing to a lack of capital, she has not been able to make the investment. This is why she is requesting a loan for 3,000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa.

Marisol is well known by our institution as she has received previous loans and made her repayments on time.
