María is 66 years old, and she lives with her husband. She has eight children who live independently. They have their own house, which has water and electrical services. They live in the Catacaos district in the Piura department. The people in this area devote themselves to agriculture, livestock, handicrafts, and tourism.

María makes and sells “chicha de jora” (a delicious, corn-based drink that is consumed a lot in the northern part of Perú). She also sells corn flour. She has been doing this for several years. It is a custom that has been passed from generation to generation in her family. Lately, her chicha de jora sales have increased. This has helped her to be able to increase her income and improve her quality of life.

Having the opportunity to grow, María has requested a loan for 1,000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa. She will use the loan to buy a greater quantity of corn and some utensils in order to continue making her delicious chicha de jora. Her aim is for her product to continue being the best, to have more customers, to get better earnings, and to pay for all of the household necessities.
