Lucía
Lucia is a 46 year old mother who lives with her husband and two children (age 6 and 11) in the district of Cayaltí, which is located an hour away from the city of Chiclayo.


She has managed a small carpentry shop at her home for the past six months. The idea for this business came about as a result of her need to provide her family with a steadier source of income. Her husband works as a farm laborer and his earnings are not sufficient to maintain the family financially.


Lucia manages the workshop with her brother and they work based on the orders they receive. Their products are of very good quality and have resulted in an increase in customers. Lucia does not have sufficient capital to continue fulfilling her customers’ requests, so she has requested her first loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1000 soles to buy wood.


Her greatest dreams are to have continued success with her workshop and purchase machinery to make production more efficient. Lucia is an active, responsible, and creative woman.

Lucía es una madre de familia de 46 años de edad que vive junto a su esposo y sus dos hijos de 06 y 11 años de edad en el distrito de Cayaltí, ubicado a una hora de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Desde hace más de seis meses es propietaria de un pequeño taller de carpintería ubicado en su domicilio. La idea de este negocio surgió debido a la necesidad de brindarle a su familia un sustento más permanente ya que su esposo trabaja como obrero agrícola y los ingresos que percibe no son suficientes para mantener la economía familiar.

Ella atiende el taller junto a su hermano y trabajan en base a pedidos. El trabajo que realizan es de muy buena calidad por lo que su clientela ha ido aumentando. Lucía no cuenta con el capital suficiente para seguir atendiendo los pedidos de sus clientes por lo que se ha visto en la necesidad de solicitar por primera vez a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 1000 nuevos soles que piensa invertir en la compra de madera.

Su más grande anhelo es seguir adelante con su taller y comprar maquinaria para hacer la producción más eficiente. Ella es una mujer bastante activa, responsable y creativa.
