A loan of $575 helped to buy beauty products for her stock.


Exedina's story

Exedina, age 37, is in a common-law marriage and has three minor children. She lives with her family in her own house in the Olmos district, Lambayeque province. It is located two hours from the city of Chiclayo. Exedina has decided to help her life partner support their family. One year ago she started selling cosmetics and beauty products by catalog. She puts forth a lot of effort to maintain her business activity. She is always looking for new customers in order to offer them her products. In the last few months her business has been enjoying a very good reception on the part of her customers. Therefore, she is thinking of setting up a space in her home where she could offer her customers stock that she has on hand. That way they will not have to always wait until the end of the month to receive their products, which is when the order arrives. In order to achieve her objective she has seen the need to request a loan for 1,500 soles from Edpyme Alternativa. Exedina is a very tenacious mother, and she really likes to be active. She has known how to win over her neighbors. They respect her and hold her in high esteem.
