Jose Miguel's story
Jose is 65 years old, married with four children who are all independent adults. He lives with his wife in Paijan, Ascope in the Libertad province, about three hours from the city of Chiclayo. For the past 30 years, he has run a small store out of his home offering a variety of beverages. He was able to start the store with his savings that he earned from his job sewing and making clothing, a job he started when he was young. Through these 2 businesses, he has been able to progress and cover his household expenses. His business has a steady flow of customers, especially during the summer when demand is high; this is why he is requesting a $700 loan from Edpyme Alternativa which will help him buy more drinks to grow his business. Jose is a very honest, hard-working man. He has worked with our institution many times prior, showing great responsibilitiy and punctuality in fulfilling his payments.
