José Nolberto's story

Jose Nolberto is 36 years old, is single, and lives with his parents in the Olmos district, an agricultural zone that produces mainly fruits such as limes, mangos and passion fruit. He is a resident of the province of Lambayeque and is located an hour and forty five minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

He works transporting passengers and freight on a mototaxi (a vehicle that consists of a motorcycle with a cabin attached to perform the work of transport). He provides service within the district where he lives and in the town in the surrounding areas. His service is well-received by his clients because of the speed and low cost. The income he receives from this activity is used to pay for his personal expenses and to help his parents with the support of the family finances.

Jose Nolberto is asking Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 1500 nuevo soles that he plans to invest in repairing and maintaining his mototaxi , which has suffered some damage resulting from the constant use and the bad condition of the roads.

Jose is hard-working and earnest. Previously, he has had loans from Epydme Alternativa and has been punctual and responsible in his payments.
