A loan of $350 helped mototaxi maintenance and repair costs.


Luis Alberto's story

Luis is 29 years old; he has 2 children and has been separated from his wife for a year. He lives in his parents' house in Cayaltí district, located an hour from Chiclayo city.

Luis owns a mototaxi and provides transport services for cargo and passengers in Cayaltí and the surrounding villages. This is his only source of income. He acquired the vehicle 2 years ago with money he saved from his work as a textile worker in the city of Lima.

The rough condition of the roads in the area have caused mechanical damage to his vehicle, and he urgently needs to make repairs so that the vehicle can remain in good working condition. Thus, he finds it necessary to request his first loan of 1,000 PEN from Edpyme Alternativa.

Luis is a hardworking young man and very devoted to his family. His greatest wish is to provide his 2 children with a good education.
