Sebastiana's story

Sebastiana is 44. She is widowed and has 2 grown children. She has her own home where she lives with her children. Her home is located in a hamlet in the Morropon district, Piura department.

Sebastiana sells beer and milled flour for making Chicha (a traditional Peruvian corn-and-flour-based drink). She has 6 years' experience with this business, and has gained experience and a fixed customer base for her business.

Sebastiana is requesting a loan of 1500 soles from Edpyme Alternativa so that she can expand her business, buying more beer and corn in large quantities, to process and convert to flour.

Sebastiana is a very diligent and hard-working person. Her greatest wish is to keep growing as a businesswoman and to be able to improve her family's quality of life.
