A loan of $550 helped repair costs and maintenance for his tractor to offer a ploughing service.

Manuel's story

Manuel is a 54-year-old father. He lives with his wife and children in the Publo Nuevo district, part of the Ferreñafe province. It is located 25 minutes from the city of Chiclayo. For over 20 years he has provided a ploughing service for farmers' fields. He has a tractor with which he offers this service to various farmers in the area. There is plenty of demand for this business, since the Ferreñafe area is predominantly agricultural, and they plant yearly. This business has allowed him to get ahead and work for the well-being of his family. Due to the continual use of this vehicle, it has had some problems which require repairs to guarantee proper functioning. In order to do this, he has decided to request his first loan, 1500 soles, from Edpyme Alternativa. Manuel is a hard-working and very responsible person. His greatest wish is to keep working to be able to offer his family the quality of life that they deserve. In the area, thanks to his work, he is very well-known and respected.
