Jose Rodolfo
José is 33 years old and lives with his wife and their 11-year-old son in the home of his mother, located in La Hollería, district of Mórrope, an hour away from the city of Chiclayo. His original profession is pottery. He makes clay pots and vases at his home at the request of an intermediary who comes and picks up the products eventually. Until a year ago he was also working at an agribusiness, but it had to cut staff and he was fired. With his severance pay he set up a small convenience store in his home thanks to his wife's initiative, and this business assures them of a stable family income. Eventually he also found work as a civil construction worker, but it is not a permanent job like his pottery work. Because of all this he has seen the need to request his first loan of 1,000 soles (approximately $350) through Kiva partner Edpyme Alternative, to use to purchase more merchandise and expand his store. He is an honest father and worker, and his dream is to expand his store and acquire a truck so he can make a living distributing drinks throughout his area since these products are in short supply at local stores.

José tiene 33 años de edad, vive con su esposa y su hijo de 11 años en casa de su madre, ubicada en el sector La Hollería, distrito de Mórrope, a una hora de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Su profesión original es la alfarería, confecciona ollas y vasijas de barro en su casa a pedido de un intermediario que viene a recoger sus productos eventualmente. Hasta hace un año trabajaba en una empresa agroindustrial pero esta tuvo que recortar personal y fue despedido. Con el dinero de su liquidación instaló una pequeña bodega en su casa a iniciativa de su esposa y con este negocio se asegura una fuente de ingreso familiar estable.

Eventualmente también trabaja como obrero de construcción civil, pero este trabajo no es permanente así como su labor de alfarero. Por este motivo se ha visto en la necesidad de solicitar por primera vez a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 1000 nuevos soles para comprar más mercadería y ampliar su bodega.

El es un padre de familia honrado y trabajador, su sueño es ampliar su bodega y adquirir una camioneta para dedicarse a la distribución de bebidas en la zona ya que este producto es escaso en las bodegas del lugar.
