Maria Edy
Edy is 28 years old and lives with her husband and son in her parents' home. Her family work on the land since the area of Monsefú (Lambayeque department) is rich in fertile soil, owing to the fact that it is surrounded by the River Reque basin. Locals also raise animals, make handicrafts and prepare food.

Edy makes and sews handicrafts and embroiders textiles (embroidered tablecloths, table skirts, embroidered napkins, traditional outfits for folk dances, etc.) She has been doing this work for eight years, in a small workshop which is located in her home.

Edy is requesting a loan for 1,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa to invest in buying raw materials (such as fabric, threads and needles) so that she can do her embroidery work as she has several orders.

This loan will enable Edy to have a better quantity of finished products in stock so that she can make direct sales and not have to wait for orders.

Edy has good local references. She works with recreational centers (restaurants and rural tourism centers) who order napkins from her for their customers. They also request decorated tablecloths and table centerpieces which Edy provides them with.
