Cecilia Margarita's story

Cecilia is 38 years old. She lives with her husband and children in their own home, where they have only electricity (no running water). Their home is located in the rural area of Tambogrande district, which is part of the Piura department. This is an area of agriculture, livestock, and handicrafts. For the last two years, Cecilia has worked selling beauty products and clothes. She manages her business from her home, and has her own customer base. With the income she earns from both activities, she is able to provide a better quality of life for her family. She has requested a loan of 1,000 New Soles from Edpyme Alternativa to buy more beauty products and fashionable clothes to show and sell to her customers, and so be able to generate more earnings to cover all her financial obligations. Cecilia is a hard-working woman and mother, who always tries to move her family ahead in spite of the difficulties that sometimes occur in life.
