A loan of $950 helped to buy corn to prepare chicha (a traditional corn-based drink) and beer.

Aurelia's story

Aurelia is a mother aged 44, who has two children and lives in the district of La Matanza, an agricultural community located in the Piura region. She sells chicha de jora (a traditional corn-based drink) and beer in her home, and has done so for more than five years. She usually sells her produce twice a week and, due to her good customer service, her business is one of the busiest in the area.

Aurelia has requested a loan of 2,500 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa to invest in her business. Specifically, she plans to buy beer, corn, and chairs and accessories for her business. In this way she hopes to obtain more income to provide for her family, and therefore provide them with a better quality of life. One of her main goals is to attract more customers and see her sales grow. To do so she makes a lot of effort, assumes a lot of responsibility and works hard. She is an old client of this institution and has shown herself to be timely and responsible with her repayments.
