A loan of $700 helped expenses to repair housing damaged by rain.

Juan Lorenzo's story

Juan is 24 years old. He is single and lives in his father's house with his younger sister. His mother passed away. His housing is located in the city of Ferreñafe, an area very well known within the Lambayeque region because of its traditional food. Most of its residents work in trade and growing rice.

For three years he has been selling chicken and other poultry in the central market of Ferreñafe. This market is a supply center with a large number of people. There the Ferreñafen people sell all types of items from vegetables, meats, clothing, groceries, hardware and more. It has been operating for 40 years.

Juan is a well known person in the market because he offers quality products and good customer service. He gives everything to get his business ahed since it is the only source of income he has.

Juan is asking Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 2000 nuevos soles that he is planning on investing in improving his housing. Due to the rains, water has been leaking, deteriorating the structure. Juan is always looking out for his family's wellbeing and this is why he is planning on undertaking the necesary improvements.

Juan is a very hard working young man and dedicated to his family. He has worked before with our institution and has shown himself to be punctual and responsible when it comes to making his payments.
