A complex of pyramids is found there whose construction dates from pre-Incan times. It belongs to the province of Lambayeque and it is located approximately one hour from the city of Chiclayo. For ten years he has worked as a bread baker. Presently he has a small oven installed in his home. Every night he prepares the dough that he will bake very early the next day to distribute in the communities located near the place he lives and even in the Túcume district. He is able to pay his expenses and help his family with the business. José Manuel wants to expand his business by making more bread. For this he has asked Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1500 nuevos soles that he plans on investing in purchasing ingredients and materials to attain his goal. José Manuel is a hardworking and enterprising person. His greatest wish is to keep growing as a businessman and prepare a wider variety of products.
