Santiago's story

Santiago is 28 years old and single. He lives with his parents in the Manco Cápac sector of the Paiján district. This area is a rising commercial area in the Ascope province in the La Libertad region. The zone is located more than two and a half hours from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the Lambayeque region.

He has worked in agriculture from a young age, maintaining and growing the areas crops. Paiján is a district that produces mainly asparagus and various greens. He works Monday through Saturday from very early in the morning until late in the evening. With his earnings he is able to pay for his personal expenses and help his father with the family expenses.

Santiago would like to improve the structure of his home. It is currently made of rustic material (adobe) and time and rain have considerably weakened it. In order to achieve his objective he has solicited a loan of 1000 Nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa.

Santiago is a hardworking and responsible man. His greatest wish is to continue to work in order to help his father. His neighbors hold him in great esteem and respect.
