Pablo's story

Pablo is 23 years old, single, and lives with his parents in the district of Olmos, which is located in rugged territory where the population lives mainly in rural areas. This community is part of Lambayeque Province and is located 1½ hours from the city of Chiclayo.

Pablo has been in business for more than three years as a metalworker. He currently has his own workshop located in central Olmos. There he makes all types of metal structures such as doors, window frames, tables, and other items. The quality of his work has brought recognition to his business and he has several established customers who always request for his services. This activity is his only source of income, which he uses to pay his personal expenses and support his family financially.

Pablo wants to continue his business by purchasing a compressor that will allow him to paint the furniture he makes. For this reason, he is requesting his first loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 1200 PEN to help meet this goal.

Pablo is an enterprising young man who also volunteers. His greatest desire is to continue expanding and equipping his workshop so that he can work to provide his family a better quality of life. He is well-known and respected in the area where he lives.
