A loan of $600 helped to buy clothing to sell.

Eslys's story

Elsys is 19 years old. She lives in her own home with her husband and young daughter. The house is located in the district of Tambogrande. Elsys lives in a rural part of the district and does not have basic services.

She relies on the business of selling clothing from her own home, for which she has already established customers in the area. She attends to it permanently and has more than a year of experience in the business. She works on an agricultural estate and they pay her monthly. At the same time she makes a living selling groceries and raising small animals. With the income that she receives she helps support her family.

Elsys wants to buy more clothing to sell later, especially for the Christmas season. This is why she thought it would be a good idea to get a loan for 1,500 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
