A loan of $375 helped computer maintenance and office supplies to improve his typing and scanning business.

Julio Cesar's story

Julio, age 28, is single and has no children. He lives with his parents in the city of Lambayeque. It is an area with plenty of commercial activity, which is located 20 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

For three years he has been providing typing, printing, and scanning services in his house. To do his work he has a fully equipped computer. This activity is well received in the city because the largest university in the area is located there. The students always need these services to be able to do their work in the best way.

Julio works in a responsible way. He does whatever he can to offer good service. That is why he now has a group of loyal customers. They always go to him when they need their work typed or when they need to print it. With the income he gets from this activity he pays for his personal expenses and helps his parents with the household finances.

The continual use of his machines has caused them to start having some problems, which require urgent repair in order to guarantee that they work correctly. Also, Julio wants to get some office supplies, which he can use in his business. That is why he is asking Edpyme Alternativa, for the first time, for a loan for 1,000 soles. The loan will help him achieve his objective.

Julio is a hard-working and responsible young man. In the area where he lives his neighbors and his customers hold him in high esteem and consider him to be trustworthy.
