Jorge Dante's story

Jorge is a family man. He is 21 years old and he lives together with his wife and their young son in the region of San Ramon in Caserio Fanupe, Barrio Nuevo. The region is a rural zone that is part of the district of Morrope in the province of Lambayeque. Region is located more than one hour from the city of Chiclayo.

He has had his grocery store for two years. He has set up a small store in a section of his house. There he sells products of every day use to his clients, who do not have easy access to such products from the main village for its far distance. The business is successful and it is thanks to this source of income that he is able to cover the family's expenses.

Jorge wishes to expand his business and to purchase more merchandise, to increase his sales and see an improvement in his earnings. He does not have enough capital funds to make this happen on his own. He requests a first time loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) in the amount of 1500 nuevos soles.

Jorge is a hard working and very devoted father. Every day he gives his all to provide his family with the quality of life they need. People know him for being calm and trustworthy.
