Yuri's story

Yuri is 34 years old and single. He lives with his family in the Olmos district. It is an agricultural district, which is comprised of various rural areas that are quite separate from each other. This district belongs to the Lambayeque province, which is over two hours from the city of Chiclayo. He has been selling medicine in a pharmacy for two years. He has a place, which is located close to the center of the town. This business is very well received because his main customers are the people who live in the diverse populated centers in the area. The customers do not have enough money to go to the city of Chiclayo to get the medicines. With the earnings from this activity he helps his parents support the family. Yuri wishes to expand his business by purchasing more medicine. He wants to do this to be able to better satisfy the customer demand. To achieve his goal he thinks it is advisable to request a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 1,200 soles. This will help him achieve his objective. He is an enterprising young man who has known how, with great effort, to make his business grow. In the area where he lives his neighbors and acquaintances consider him to be an honest and responsible young man.
