A loan of $300 helped to increase her stock of cosmetics.

Vicki's story

Vicki, 29, lives with her husband and minor son in Pedregal, a rural part of the Tambogrande agricultural district located in Piura Region more than four hours away to the north of the city of Chiclayo. The zone has quite a precarious quality of life; the only utility it has is electricity.

Vicky sells cosmetics via catalogue. She sells all her products based on customer orders and also buys some herself in order to have some permanent stock on hand. Her clientele is found in the area where she lives. She generally walks long distances seeking new customers in adjacent settlements.
She has more than two years’ business experience. In addition, she raises barnyard fowl to sell. She helps her husband support their home with her income.

She wants to buy more products to increase her stock of cosmetics and be able thus to meet greater customer demand. To reach her objective she’s felt it advisable to request an 800 new sol loan from Edpyme Alternative with which she feels she car reach it. In the zone where she lives, she is a quite well-known and respected person.
