A loan of $725 helped pay for repairs to his mototaxi.


Luis Ricardo's story

Luis is 31 years old and a father. He lives with his wife and children in the Chochope neighborhood, in the Motupe district. This is an agricultural zone within the province of Lambayeque, located one hour from the city of Chiclayo.

He has been transporting freight and passengers via “mototaxi” since he was very young. When he began working in this field, he used have to rent his vehicle, but he later began saving his money and was able to buy his own vehicle four years ago. He now uses it to work within his neighborhood and within the neighboring zones.

He has continued to use his vehicle, but the conditions of the roads in the zone have caused some damage to his mototaxi, which is in urgent need of repair. Because of this, Luis has seen fit to request this first loan of 2000 PEN ($725) through Edpyme Alternativa. This will allow him to meet his objective.

Luis is an honest, hard working man. His greatest desire is to give his children the opportunity to study and have a better career.
