Peregrina's story

Peregrina is 56 years old, married and has 2 children. She lives in the district of Tambogrande, an agricultural zone with a regular amount of business, located in the province of Piura. It is more than four hours from the city of Chiclayo.

She has a small store set up in her home. There Peregrina offers her customers basic necessity products. She tells us that her business was born from the need to have additional income to allow her to get her family ahead. She also farms and has 2.5 hectares of land planted with lemon trees and corn, which she harvests weekly.

Peregrina wants to enlarge her business to improve her service. She also wants to buy fertilizer and pesticide for her crops. That is why she is asking Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 2000 nuevos soles which will help her meet her proposed objective.

Peregrina is an honorable and respected woman in the area where she lives.
