A loan of $675 helped maintenance and repair expenses for his vehicle.


Lino's story

Lino is 47 years old, and he is married. He lives with his family in the Villa el Salvador sector of a marginally urban area of the city of Chiclayo.

He has been providing public transportation within the city of Chiclayo and its surroundings for over ten years. He uses his own car, a Tico, as a taxi. This activity is his only source of income. Thanks to this income he is able to pay the family expenses and get his family ahead.

Lino is asking Edpyme Alternativa for a loan for 1,900 soles. He plans to use it for maintenance and repairs on his vehicle. The continual use of his vehicle has caused it to start having problems, which hinder proper function.

Lino is a hard-working man who devotes most of the day to providing service. His greatest desire is to get ahead and to make his business more stable. Then he will get greater income, which will allow him to give his loved ones a better quality of life.

He has worked with our institution previously, and he has demonstrated punctuality and responsibility with his payments.
