Roman
Roman, 37, is married and lives with his wife and three children in the Punto 9 sector, Mochumí district, which is 30 minutes away from the city of Chiclayo. For the last two years he has sold gasoline from his home. He began this work because the earnings he made from working as a field hand were not enough to meet family expenses. Gasoline is very useful in the area where he lives, above all for irrigation of farmlands, because the great majority of fields do not have irrigation canals and the crops must be watered with water that is extracted from wells by motors. He also works as an agricultural field hand. Roman is aware that he must exhert the greatest effort daily if he is to support his family so he gives his all to the tasks he does. He is asking Edpyme Alternativa for 1500 new soles to be used to enlarge his gasoline-sales business. His greatest wish is to provide his children with the possibility to study some kind of a professional career when they finish secondary school. He has collaborated with our institution in the past and he has shown himself to be responsible and punctual with respect to repayments.

Roman tiene 37 años de edad, es casado y vive junto a su esposa y sus tres hijos en el sector Punto 9 del distrito de Mochumí, ubicado a 30 minutos de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Se dedica a la venta de gasolina en su domicilio desde hace dos años. Inició esta actividad debido a que los ingresos que percibia trabajando como obrero agrícola no eran suficientes para solventar los gastos familiares. La gasolina es de mucha utilidad en la zona donde vive, sobretodo para el riego de campos de sembrío, ya que la mayor parte de terrenos agrícolas no cuentan con canales de regadío y tienen que regar sus cultivos con agua de pozo extraida por motores.

Adicionalmente trabaja como obrero agrícola. Roman sabe que tiene que esforzarse al máximo todos los dias para sacar adelante a su familia, por ello siempre da todo de sí en las labores que realiza. El se encuentra solicitando a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 1500 nuevos soles que planea utilizar en la ampliación de su negocio de venta de gasolina.

Su mas grande anhelo es brindarle a sus hijos la posibilidad de estudiar algun tipo de carrera superior cuando terminen sus estudios secundarios. El ya ha trabajado anteriormente con nuestra Institución y ha demostrado ser un cliente puntual y responsable al momento de asumir sus pagos.
