Lila Gloria's story

Lila, 51, is a mother living in her own house with her husband and children. The house has both water and electricity. It is located in the rural part of La Victoria District which belongs to Chiclayo Province. This zone is notedfor its agriculture and most residents are public transportation providers. Lila sells basic need items (milk, sugar, rice, detergent, Frugo brand beverages, snacks, etc.) The store is located in her home and her neighbors find all kinds of foodstuffs there She also raises sheep to sell. Once she fattens them up to ideal weight she sells them in the various markets in her area and uses income from both businesses to try to provide a better standard of living for her family. Through a visit to Edpyme Alternativa, Lila tries to acquire a 1000 new sol loan to do some home improvements, like in the rear, for example, to provide more security. Increasing sales in both businesses will make it possible for her to repay the loan while still meeting her family obligations. Lila is a mother who, with effort and hard work, tries to move her family forward.
