Alberto
Alberto, 45, and his wife live in La Matanza, a rural area known for its carob forests. La Matanza is about two hours from Piura, a city in north coastal Perú and local people depend on farming, animal-rearing and other small businesses.


Alberto operates a business selling firewood. He carries it to the surrounding towns in a rented vehicle. He earns extra income by working as a day laborer.


Alberto is applying for a 3,000 new soles loan that he will use to buy a used mototaxi. The investment will allow him to save the cost of renting a vehicle for carrying firewood to his customers and, by extension, increase the money he can make to support his family.

More information about this loan

This product was created to assist Edpyme Alternativa to expand their reach into rural areas of Northern Peru in order to attend more underserved populations. Kiva funding allows the institution to access the Northern areas of the Piura, Lambayeque, and Cajamarca regions, which are generally too costly to serve and therefore less attended by financial institutions.
