Basilia
Basilia, 45, lives with her 15-year-old son in Cura Mori district, Piura province, Piura region. It’s located three hours from the city of Chiclayo, Lambayeque region’s capital.

For the last two years she has sold chicha (alcoholic beverage made from fermented corn) and mutton; she raises the animals herself and prepares the chicha based on corn flour and sugar. Chicha is a typical beverage of the country that has been consumed by our ancestors since ancient times. Residents of rural areas of the country believe that it provides energy for work and they also consume it on special occasions.

Both businesses complement each other because often customers ask her to prepare a typical, mutton-based dish (seco de cabrito with beans, for example) to enjoy with the chicha. Basilia’s good customer service has made her well-known in the area and she can count on her regular customers to come by her home to acquire her products.

Basilia wants to buy more corn flour to increase her chicha production as well as buy feed to improve the quality of her animals. For this reason, she is asking Edpyme Alternativa for her first loan in the amount of 500 new soles that will help her reach this goal in order to increase sales and thus obtain higher profits.

She is a cheerful and responsible woman. Where she lives, her customers and neighbors consider her to be an honest and hard-working woman.

Se dedica a la venta de chicha y de carne de carnero desde hace dos años, ella misma cría los animales que vende, y también prepara la chicha a base de harina de maíz y azúcar. La chicha es una bebida típica del país que viene siendo consumida por nuestros antepasados desde tiempos ancestrales, los pobladores de las zonas rurales del país creen que brinda energías para el trabajo y también la consumen en celebraciones especiales.

Ambos negocios se complementan ya que muchas veces los clientes le piden que prepare algun plato tipico a base de carnero (seco de cabrito con frejoles, por ejemplo) para acompañarlo con chicha, el buen trato de Basilia le ha hecho conocida en la zona y ya cuenta con una clientela fija que siempre acude a su vivienda para adquirir los productos que ofrece.

Basilia desea ampliar su negocio con la compra de harina de maíz para elaborar mas chicha y también en la compra de alimento para mejorar la calidad de sus animales. Por este motivo ha solicitado por primera vez a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 500 nuevos soles que le ayuden a lograr su objetivo de modo que pueda incrementar sus ventas y obtener mayores ingresos.

Ella es una mujer alegre y responsable, en la zona donde vive, sus clientes y vecinos le consideran una mujer honrada y trabajadora.
