Rodis Maribel's story

Rodis is 33 years old and the mother of a family, who lives with her husband and her 2 minor children in the Ernesto Vilchez neighborhood, a marginal urban zone in Ferreñafe. This city is known in the north for it typical dishes. It is located 20 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

Since a year ago she has operated a small grocery store from her house, offering her customers all types of products of primary necessity (rice, sugar, oil), and groceries, vegetables, and school supplies. The business is a big help for the family economy. She and her husband, who sells CDs on the streets of Chiclayo, struggle to get ahead.

Her business is well received because she treats her customers well and always attempts to offer quality products. Demand for the things she offers in her store has risen and Rodis feels that the moment has come to expand. That's why she is requesting a loan for the first time from Edpyme Alternativa for 1,000 New Sols, which she wants to invest in purchasing more groceries and products of prime necessity that will aid her in reaching her objective.

Rodis is a very hard working person who is dedicated to her family. Her neighbors and acquaintances consider her responsible and trustworthy. Her greatest wish is to offer her children the opportunity to continue their studies in order to assure a promising future.
