Rosa Maria's story

Rosa, 42, lives with her husband and children in their own house, but it doesn’t have basic utilities. Their home is located in the rural district of Tambogrande in Piura department which is a zone characterized by farming, cattle raising and arts and crafts. To get financing for a person like Rosa can be a little more difficult, and the work of Kiva and Edpyme Alternativa is crucial.

This is her second loan with Edpyme Alternativa and Kiva’s support and she has proven to be responsible in her payments. For about the last 6 years Rosa has sold groceries (products of daily use such as: milk, rice, oil, sugar, toilet paper, tuna, eggs, etc) cleaning articles and drinks. She has her business in her own house for her comfort and security. She tries to use the earnings from her sales to cover all the household needs and expenses.

To be able to continue consolidating her business and because of the success of her first loan, she has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa of 2000 new sols for working capital to buy pharmaceutical products and items for the business. Her only goal is that her business grows and she has more products to offer her customers.

Rosa is a hardworking person who is dedicated to her business and she worries about giving her family a comfortable life and offering opportunities to her children.
