Jessica Katherined
Jessica is a 21-year-old wife and mother of a 18-month-old daughter who live in her parents' home located in the Cayaltí district, which is an hour away from the city of Chiclayo. For the past year she has sold tamales (a typical dish made from corn). Every afternoon she canvasses the plaza and streets of her district to sell her product to the occasional customer. Her husband works sporadically as an agricultural laborer at the area's agroindustrial cooperative but does not earn enough to cover family expenses so she has to work daily to help with household costs. The good flavoring in her tamales has resulted in customers placing orders for them but she doesn't have the necessary capital to fill them. This is why she is asking Edpyme Alternativa for a first loan of 1,000 new soles to buy the necessary ingredients to make her tamales. She is a hard-working, responsible, very optimistic mother. Her dream is to be able to build her own home and to continue supporting her family.

Jessica es una madre de familia de 21 años de edad que vive junto a su esposo y su hija de año y medio de edad en casa de sus padres ubicada en el distrito de Cayaltí, a una hora de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Desde hace un año se dedica a la venta de tamales (plato típico hecho a base de maíz). Todas las tardes recorre la plaza y las calles del su distrito para vender su producto a sus eventuales clientes. Su esposo trabaja esporádicamente como peón agrícola en la cooperativa agroindustrial de la zona, pero lo que percibe no es suficiente para solventar los gastos familiares por lo que ella tiene que trabajar a diario para ayudar a la economía del hogar.

La buena sazón con la que prepara sus tamales ha hecho que también trabaje en base a pedidos, pero ella no cuenta con el capital suficiente para atenderlos, por lo que se encuentra solicitando por primera vez a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 1000 nuevos soles para invertirlos en la compra de los insumos necesarios para elaborar sus productos.

Ella es una madre trabajadora, responsable y muy optimista. Su sueño es poder construir su casa propia y seguir apoyando a su familia.
