Luis Ricardo
Luis is 31 years old and a father. He lives with his wife and children in the Chochope neighborhood, in the Motupe district. This is an agricultural zone within the province of Lambayeque, located one hour from the city of Chiclayo.

He has been transporting freight and passengers via “mototaxi” since he was very young. When he began working in this field, he used have to rent his vehicle, but he later began saving his money and was able to buy his own vehicle four years ago. He now uses it to work within his neighborhood and within the neighboring zones.

He has continued to use his vehicle, but the conditions of the roads in the zone have caused some damage to his mototaxi, which is in urgent need of repair. Because of this, Luis has seen fit to request this first loan of 2000 PEN ($725) through Edpyme Alternativa. This will allow him to meet his objective.

Luis is an honest, hard working man. His greatest desire is to give his children the opportunity to study and have a better career.

Luis es un padre de familia de 31 años de edad que vive junto a su esposa y a sus hijos en el caserío Chochope del distrito de Motupe, una zona agrícola de la provincia de Lambayeque, ubicada a una hora de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Se ha dedicado desde muy joven al transporte de carga y pasajeros en una mototaxi. Cuando empezó a trabajar en este rubro solía alquilar algún vehículo de este tipo para ganarse el sustento, pero luego empezó a ahorrar y hace cuatro años pudo adquirir su propio vehículo. Actualmente se vale de el para cubrir rutas dentro de su caserío y con las zonas aledañas.

El continuo uso brindado a su unidad movil y el estado accidentado de las carreteras de la zona han hecho que su mototaxi empiece a sufrir algunas fallas que requieren de urgente reparación para su correcto funcionamiento, por ello Luis se ha visto en la necesidad de solicitar por primera vez a Edpyme Alternativa un crédito de 2000 nuevos soles que le ayuden a lograr su objetivo.

Luis es una persona honrada y muy trabajadora, su mayor anhelo es bridarle a sus hijos la oportunidad de estudiar una carrera superior.
