Cristina
Cristina is a 42-year-old mother who lives in her own home together with her husband and her children who are still dependent on her. They have a small house in a rural village called "Sialupe Baca de Punto 9" which is located some 20 minutes from Lambayeque district, which is 15 minutes from the city of Chiclayo. The people in Cristina's village mainly work in farming and livestock raising. It is a developing area and, right now, the only basic service they have access to is electricity.

Cristina's daily business is raising and selling animals such as cattle, sheep, farmyard birds (ducks and turkeys), guinea pigs, etc. This is a business that she has always worked in and she has approximately 10 years experience. She inherited the business from her parents who taught her, from a very early age, how to buy and sell animals. She has set up spaces on her property where she raises these animals. In addition, Cristina also makes daily income selling 'chicha de jora' (a traditional, corn-based drink). Her children and husband work together with her in undertaking new family projects. They work every day to achieve their goals and thereby improve their living conditions.

Cristina has clear and established goals. She would like to buy nutritionally-balanced feed which she will use to fatten her animals. She will also buy ingredients for making more 'chicha de jora'. Cristina has requested a loan for 700 soles from Edpyme Alternativa which will help her to make more income. This will enable her to improve her quality of life and also repay her loan.

Cristina has been an entrepreneurial woman since she was very young thanks to the values that her parents instilled in her. These values are now recognized by her neighbors who have a great deal of admiration for her because she is always looking out for her family's well-being.
