A loan of $925 helped to buy ingredients to make "chifles" (fried banana chips).

Wilson Omar's story

Omar, 28, has a little son. He is known in his community for being a hard working, honest young man who very much wants to get ahead. He lives at home with his mother in Castilla-Piura District.

Omar makes “chifles” to sell. Piura is a city famous for its delicious chifles which are snacks made from fried bananas (chips). Omar has had the business for the last three years and he makes them at home. He has a well established clientele in the area.

Omar is asking Edpyme Alternativa for a 2500 new sol loan to buy ingredients needed for the chifle production. Omar’s demand has increased and this is why he finds himself in need of requesting the loan.

Omar is a repeat client of our firm and has repaid his loans adequately. He is a man who enjoys good personal and work-related references.
