Santos Eladio's story

Santos is a 38-year-old father who lives together with his partner and his three children in Tambogrande district. This is an agricultural area with a lot of commercial activity. It is located in Piura province, more than four hours from the city of Chiclayo.

Santos has a motorcycle taxi (a motorcycle with a small cabin for transporting passengers and cargo). He uses this vehicle to provide a public transport service in neighboring areas. In addition, he also fattens and sells livestock. These activities are his sources of income and they enable him to provide for his family financially.

Santos would like to acquire animal feed so that he can improve the quality of the animals that he raises and obtain a better production that will allow him to continue in his business. He is requesting his first loan from Edpyme Alternativa, for 1,000 soles, which will help him to achieve his goal.

Santos is a hard-working person who has a great desire to do well in life.
