A loan of $350 helped buy a multifunction printer to expand his business.

Elmer's story

Elmer, 28 years old, is single and lives with his parents in the Casa Grande sector of the District of Arena, Province of Piura, in the Piura region about three hours and forty five minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

Eight months ago he installed an internet cafe business in his parents house, acquiring five computers with the savings from his previous work selling rice. He had studied the Computing and Information Technology course at an institute in the city of Piura. Starting this business has always been the goal he hoped to accomplish.

The business has been very useful for the students of the area who always come during the school year to search for information for their school work. Elmer wants to acquire a multifunctional printer with which he can provide better service in the future. For this reason he has seen the necessity of requesting for the first time a loan from Edpyme Alternative for 1000 new soles.

His greatest wish is to expand his business to be able to provide good service.He is a responsible young man, hard working and dedicated.
