Fanny's story

Fanny is 50 years old, single and has no children. Even though this can often be seen as a negative situation where she is from, she has demonstrated her will to prosper and work hard. Indeed, this is now the second loan Fanny takes from Edpyme Alternative with the support of Kiva, having had a good experience her first time around.

She lives in her own house, with her mother in the district of Tambogrande, Northern Peru. They do not have the basic services of water or electricity in her community. Fanny has two main sources of income. On the one hand, she sells cosmetics which has proven a succesful idea. On the other hand, she also has a small crop of lemons, which she takes care of with the help of her nephews. She is now looking for a loan of 1,500 to keep on expanding her cosmetics business and to buy compost for her lemon plants. She proved to be a responsible client and was prompt paying her previous loan.
