A loan of $300 helped repair & upholster his vehicle.

Victor Edinson's story

Victor is 41 years old, married, and has two dependent children. He and his family live in the District of Fraternidad Juan Valer Sandoval in the city of Piura, which is three hours away from city of Chiclayo.

He has a small metal shop in his house where he usually works. Since this business does not generate the steady income that he needs, Victor also provides transport services of both cargo and passengers in the motorcycle taxi he acquired three years ago.

He provides his services within the city of Piura. With the additional income, Victor is able to meet his family’s expenses. His motorcycle taxi business suffers whenever his vehicle encounters mechanical failures that require urgent repairs. For this reason, he is requesting his first loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 800 soles in order to repair and upholster his vehicle.

His greatest wish is to make improvements to his home since it is made of basic materials (adobe). Victor is well-known and respected among his neighbors, who consider him to be a hardworking and responsible father.
