Eddil Esperanza's story

Eddil is a 59 year old mother. She lives in her own home with her husband and children. Their home has water and electricity only and is located on Atahualpa street, without a number, in the Olmos district, approximately an hour from the province of Chiclayo. This is a rural area and the residents work in agriculture and raise livestock.

Eddil has a business in her house where she sells beer, soda and mineral water. When her neighbors have an important event (birthdays and celebrations in Olmos) they buy her products as she is well-known in the district. This small business is her only means of income to better her families quality of life.

Through a visit to Edpyme Alternativa, Eddil is trying to borrow 1500 nuevos soles [Peruvian currency] to stock her store with more beer, soda and mineral water to satisfy her customers and increase her household income.

Eddil is known by her neighbors as a cheerful woman who is willing to help others and also, as a responsible mother whose goal is to proviD. for her family through hard work.
