Cristina
Cristina is 39 years old and is a mother to 4 children and lives with her husband in the district of Paiján, province of Ascope, in the region of La Libertad, located 3 hours from the city of Chiclayo.

She has sold menestras (dried legumes) in the city market for over 12 years. She tells us that she had to start this business because her husband's earnings as a farmer was not enough to make ends meet in her home. Everyday Cristina sells menestras in grain and precooked from 8 in the morning until 2 o’clock.

Cristina applied for a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva’s field partner) for 1000 new soles, and she will invest it to buy more menestras to expand her business since its been in trouble ever since her vesicular operation some months back and she was not able to take care of her business.

Cristina is a very active and hardworking woman. Her biggest wish is to keep growing as an entrepreneur and to give her family a better quality of life. This is her second loan with our institution and she has demonstrated responsibility and punctuality when making her payments.

Cristina es una madre de familia de 39 años de edad que vive junto a su esposo y sus cuatro hijos en el distrito de Paiján, provincia de Ascope, en la región La Libertad, ubicada a tres horas de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Se dedica a vender menestras en el mercado de la ciudad desde hace más de 12 años. Ella nos comenta que tuvo que empezar este negocio porque los ingresos que su esposo percibía como obrero agrícola no eran suficientes para solventar la economía de su hogar. Todos los días Cristina vende menestras en grano y precocidas desde las ocho de la mañana hasta las dos de la tarde.

Cristina se encuentra solicitando a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 1000 nuevos soles que piensa invertir en la compra de más menestras para ampliar su negocio, ya que este se encuentra algo desabastecido debido a que tuvo que ser operada de su vesícula hace algunos meses y no podía atender su establecimiento.

Ella es una mujer activa y bastante trabajadora. Su mayor anhelo es seguir creciendo como empresaria y brindarle a su familia una mejor calidad de vida. Este es su segundo crédito con Nuestra Institución y ha demostrado responsabilidad y puntualidad al momento de asumir sus cuotas.
