Karina's story

Karina is 33 years old and lives with her husband and children in Piquijaca, a rural area of San Felipe, a district characterized by its hot climate and lime growing. It is two hours from the city of Jaen, which is located in the Cajamarca Region in the northern mountains of Peru.

She and her husband work distributing beer, gas, and fuel. Karina has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa of 2000 PEN to invest in a small grocery store by buying groceries, rice, milk, sugar, and dried vegetables. In this way she will be able to make a better income for her family.
