Martin
Martin is 34 years old and is single. He lives with his grandparents and with his younger brother. They live in a rural settlement called "Simbila," which is part of the Catacaos district. This is a purely rural area where the houses lack basic utilities.

Martin has a business making and selling pottery items such as jars, jugs, pots, pitchers and other products. These products are used by the women who make chicha de jora (a traditional Peruvian beverage made from fermented corn.) He has been doing this type of work since he was very young. It has now been 10 years since he began to work independently doing this type of work that he knows so well. He has an established customer base because of all of his years of experience. It's worth noting that he also sells goats and barnyard fowl; this activity provides him with extra income for his household.

Martin is requesting a loan of 1,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa to invest in his business. He will use the loan to buy firewood and raw materials to make his pottery products, and he will also purchase animals and animal feed. This will allow him to attract more customers, and thereby improve his financial situation and improve his quality of life.
