Aurora Elizabeth's story

Aurora is 50 years old, lives with a partner, and has a young daughter. She lives together with her family in Nueva Arica, which belongs to the Lambayeque region. She is located an hour from the city of Chiclayo.

For the past five years, Aurora has dedicated herself to the sale of basic necessities and groceries through a small shop in her house. She offers her neighbors all types of day-to-day products and always provides to guarantee a good welcome. The income from this activity is used to move her family forward little by little. Her husband is a day laborer who dedicates himself to agricultural work. This generates additional income.

Aurora wishes to acquire merchandise so she can expand her sales and earnings. For this reason, she has found it helpful to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 2000 nuevos soles to help achieve her goal.
