A loan of $750 helped to buy items of in-season clothing to expand her business.

Karen Lizet's story

Karol is 24 years old, single and has no children. She lives with her parents in one of the small villages that form part of the agricultural district of Tambogrande in the Piura region.

She has spent more than four years selling clothes. She does so by travelling to the various small villages close by, where she has regular clients. She accepts credit as well as cash payments and also offers a delivery service to her clients.

Karol would like to buy more items of clothing for the current season to be able to expand her business and meet client demands, which increase daily. As such, she felt it would be advisable to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 2000 new soles which would help her to achieve her goal.

She is already known to our company for her punctuality and responsibility when it comes to making her repayments. Her business mind and fighting spirit push her to push herself to get ahead with her business. Karol would like to thank in advance the people who will collaborate with her through Kiva.
