Jimmy Gererdo
Jimmy is 29 years old and lives with his family in the district of Cayalti, a district whose main line of work is in the planting of sugar cane. It is an hour away from the city of Chiclayo.

Jimmy has been providing a public transportation service for over 10 years to both people and goods. His route covers the Zaña-Chiclayo areas and vice versa. He started this business whilst working as a driver of a bus and little by little moved up in the field. He currently has his own vehicle, which he uses for this work. This job provides him with his only income, and he, therefore, tries as hard as he can to get ahead and to make ends meet.

The continual use of his vehicle means that it is in need of some urgent repairs. Jimmy is therefore requesting his first loan of 2000 Peruvian New Soles from Edpyme Alternativa so that he can put this money towards the repairing of his vehicle.

Jimmy is very hard working and responsible. His greatest wish is to be in charge of another route and expand his business bit-by-bit. His neighbours and friends consider him to be trustworthy.
