Edelvina's story

Edelvina is 30 years old. She is single and lives with her parents and her young daughter in their own home, which is located in the Cayalti District one hour from the city of Chiclayo, capital of the Lambayeque Province in Peru. Edelvina works in commerce, agriculture and raising livestock. She has grown and sold alfalfa as well as small farm animals for eight years. Her income covers her and her family's expenses. Edelvina would like to expand her business. For this reason, she sees fit to obtain a loan of $400 to purchase more animals for breeding and to maintain her alfalfa crops. She could thereby effectively address the unmet demand that exists there, expand her customer base and increase revenues.
