Edith
Edith, 29, is living with her spouse, Máximo, and their little 7-year-old girl, Madeleine forming a home living in their own adobe house. For the last 8 years she’s been a grocer. She was able to set aside the ground floor of her house as a grocery store with support from her spouse and since then has been very well received by local neighbors generating good household income.

She believes that being able to be in her store allows her to keep in constant contact with her daughter since she was one of the motivating forces behind her opening the store. Nevertheless, delays in product delivery from some of her suppliers cause problems because she constantly loses customers. Because of this she believes that the best way to counteract this is by purchasing products and non-perishable foodstuffs at wholesale in order to have a better reserve.

For Edith, this is her 9th loan. With it she feels confident and grateful to make her payments. She also considers that work in her communal bank is more effective because it inspires confidence in her in all respects. She plans to use the 2,000 to buy sacks of rice, canned goods and cereals to have enough in reserve to avoid supply delays that harm her and her customers.

Edith de 29 años , actualmente convive con su pareja, Máximo conjuntamente con la pequeña Madeleine de 7 añitos , conformando un hogar que habita en una casa propia hecha a base de adobe . Su oficio desde hace ya 8 años abarca el rubro de la tienda de abarrotes que logro habilitar en el primer piso de su domicilio con el apoyo de su pareja y desde entonces ha tenido una muy buena acogida entre los vecinos del lugar, generando así buenos ingresos para el hogar. Considera que el estar en su negocio le permite no perder constante comunicación con su hija pues justamente ella fue unos de los motivos para la apertura de su tienda , no obstante el retraso en la entrega de productos por parte de sus proveedores le generan grandes inconvenientes debido a que pierde clientela constantemente , por ello considera que en adelante la mejor manera de contrarrestarlo es con la compra de productos y víveres no perecibles al por mayor para así tener una mejor reserva. Para Edith este es su préstamo número 09 con la cual se siente confiada y agradecida para el cumplimiento de sus pagos , considera también que el trabajo en su banco comunal es mas efectivo debido a que a ella le genera confianza en todo aspecto.
Con los 2,000 planea comprar sacos de arroz, conservas y cereales. Con ello poder tener suficiente reserva para así evitar que el retraso de su proveedor la perjudique a ella y a sus clientes.
