Segundo's story

Segundo is a 40-year-old father who lives with his wife and children in the Luis Alva Castro sector of the Paijan district, a zone belonging to the Ascope province in the La Libertad region, two and a half hours away from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the Lambayeque region. For more than ten years he has baked and sold bread. He has a traditional oven in his home where he prepares his bread and later distributes it in the zone where he lives, in the surrounding villages and the nearby district of Puerto Malabrigo. He managed to gain a spot in the market and now has a loyal customer base. Since this activity is his only source of income, Segundo is trying to give it his best in order to make it the best possible. Segundo wants to buy more ingredients such as flour, sugar and firewood to prepare more bread and increase his sales. This will generate him more income with which he can offer his family a better quality of life. In order to achieve his goal he has found it necessary to request a loan of 2000 soles from Edpyme Alterniva.

Segundo is a very hard-working person with a great desire to succeed. He has worked previously with our institution and has demonstrated punctuality and responsibility with his repayments.
