Gabriel's story

Gabriel is a young father, 21 years old, who lives with his wife and their young son in his father's house, located in the agricultural district of Chepen, a city with a substantial amount of commercial activity. This area is part of the province of the same name, and is located an hour from Chiclayo, the capital of the Lambayeque region.

He provides cargo and passenger transport services with his mototaxi (a motorized vehicle that consists of a motorcycle that has an attached cabin where he can transport people and cargo.) He provides this service in the city of Chepen, and his business enjoys a good reception from the public, since these means of transportation are accessible to the public due to their low cost. With the income he earns, he is in charge of supporting his family. His wife works in a call center, and with the money that they both earn they try to get ahead. He is now working very hard to get his own house.

As he is continually using his vehicle, it is starting to have some mechanical problems that require urgent repair to guarantee its proper functioning. Gabriel is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for the first time for 1,000 Peruvian soles to help him carry out these repairs and do the maintenance on his vehicle that is needed.

Gabriel is a young person who strives each day to give his family the best. The people who know him consider him to be a responsible and reliable person.
