A loan of $375 helped vehicle maintenance.

Santos's story

Santos is a 51 year old father who lives with his family in Tierras Duras hamlet, within the Olmos agricultural district; part of the city of Lambayeque, located more than two hours from the city of Chiclayo.

For the past two years he has been providing transportation services for passengers and cargo in a "mototaxi." (a vehicle consisting of a modified motorcycle with a passenger compartment added). He provides this service around the various hamlets within the zone and he depends on this activity for the financial support of his family.

The continued use of his unit and the poor shape of the zone's roads have caused his mototaxi to begin to suffer a few faults that need urgent repair to ensure proper operation. In order to repair and maintain [his vehicle], he has seen fit to request a 1,000 PEN ($375) loan through Edpyme Alternativa.

Santos is a responsible, calm person. His neighbors and acquaintances within his zone consider his as being trustworthy.
