A loan of $750 helped to buy convenience store items and staple goods to supply her business.


Graciela Noemí's story

Graciela is 39 years of age, separated, and lives with her mother and two children aged six and 12. She lives in one of the small villages that make up the agricultural district of Tumán, one of the main sugar-producing regions in northern Peru. Graciela works selling staple goods in a small grocery store in her home, and has done so for the past 15 years. She offers her customers various products for daily consumption, always providing good customer service. She uses this income to try and help her family and children to get ahead financially. They also receive a pension from their father. Graciela wants to buy convenience store items and staple goods to supply her business. This will allow her to have a greater customer base and to better satisfy their needs. She has therefore requested a loan of 2,000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa. Thanks to this loan she will be able to handle the unmet demand in the area, expand her customer base, and have new customers and additional income for her family.
