Gladys's story

Gladys is 43 and lives in Caserío de Laynas, a rural community in the District of Morropon (which also the name of the province), along northern coast of Peru. This region has a hot climate and many people in the area work as farmers and ranchers or run small businesses.

Gladys has sold beer, chicha [a beverage made from corn] and Peruvian dishes for several years to a large customer base in Caserío de Laynas. She also works on banana plantations owned by her neighbors and other residents in the area.

Gladys has applied for a loan of 4,000 new soles from Edpyme Alternativa to purchase building materials so she can complete construction of part of her house. Once she has finished this project, she'll have a more comfortable home.
