Luis Enrique's story

Luis, 36, is single and lives with his mother in the Monsefú district, an area famous for its two main activities: crafts and baking. This place is located 20 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

He has had a bakery for the last 5 years. He tells us that he started out in this line of work working as a helper in various bakeries in the city. With his savings, he gradually acquired the basic tools necessary to set up his own bakery. He currently makes several products that he distributes throughout Chiclayo. This is his only source of income so he does his best to help it succeed.

Luis would like to increase productivity making more items. For this reason, he is asking Edpyme Alternativa for his first, 2000 new sol, loan to buy ingredients and supplies (firewood, flour, sugar) to reach this objective.

He is quite a hard-working young man who is dedicated to his family. His neighbors and acquaintances consider him to be quite trustworthy and responsible. His greatest wish is to equip his bakery to produce cakes.
