Jackeline's story

Jackeline is a young mother to her two small children. She is 18 years old and lives with her husband in Cruceta in the Tambogrande district. This is an agriculturally rich area with a semi tropical climate in the Piura region, 5 hours from the city of Chiclayo.

For 2 years she has sold food and drinks out of her home. She makes various dishes that are typical to the area and treats her customers well. Her business is well received because she prepares the food with very good flavor. She gets most of her business over the weekends. With the income that she earns she is able to help her husband with the family expenses.

Jackeline wants to purchase tables and chairs to better serve her customers. She also wants to invest in the purchase of drinks so that her business can grow stably. To achieve her goal she is requesting a loan for the first time from Edpyme Alternativa of 1500 soles. She is a very hardworking woman with a strong desire to succeed.
