A loan of $350 helped to purchase spare parts to increase his business supplies..


Julio's story

Julio is 60 years old, separated and lives in the district of Cayalti, located an hour from the city of Chiclayo. He repairs and maintains electrical appliances for a living. Julio owns a workshop in his home from where he works on a daily basis. The quality of his work and his sense of responsibility mean he is highly regarded and sought after. The continual demand for his services means that he has to travel regularly to Chiclayo to procure spare parts, something which creates considerable financial strain. Therefore, Julio has felt compelled for the first time to request a loan of 1000 Peruvian Soles from Edpyme Alternativa. The money is to go towards the purchase of circuits, condensers, speakers and other spare parts in order to ensure a permanent stock of supplies. Julio is a very honest person who loves his job. Both his neighbours and clients value him highly.
