A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase beer to run her business.


Milagros Del Pilar's story

Milagros del Pilar is 20 years old, lives in Caserío de Cascarrillo, a rural zone of the district of Buenos Aires, a community in a warm client whose friendly population works in agriculture, business and animal husbandry, and is located in the province of Morropon which is part of the Piura region, on the north coast of Perú.

She works selling beer, "chica de jora" (a traditional Peruvian drink made from corn), and clarito ice cream (a drink typical of the Piura region, also made from corn), and also has planted bananas in the back part of her home.

She has asked for a loan of 3,000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa to purchase fertilizer to maintain her banana crop and a second part to purchase beer to run her business and in this way generate greater income for her family.
