José's story

José is 47 years old and married with two children. He lives with his family in the José Leonardo Ortiz district, which is the highest populated district in the Lambayeque region and it is in turn the district with highest poverty rates. It is known by its high commercial activity and it is located in the wholesale market in the region. José has sold tires for over 10 years out of his home and his main customers are truck drivers who arrive daily to leave their goods at the wholesale market. As one of the few people who work in that field in the area, his business has very good reception and loyal customers. José wants to expand his business by buying more tires and rims, so that his service is complete and he can increase sales. In order to achieve this goal, he has decided to apply for a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 2000 soles. He is a person who delivers his best every day to succeed and help his family to progress. People who know him have much esteem and regard him as someone you can trust.
