A loan of $375 helped to make improvements to his house, especially his living room.

Chero De La Cruz's story

Jesús is married, 34 years old, and lives with his wife and three children in the Tumi de Oro section of the town of Yencala Boggiano. This is a rural, primarily agricultural zone, that is located in the district of Lambayeque, more than 20 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

He dedicates himself to work related to farming, raising cattle and goats for later sale. He also works as a farm laborer at the various harvest lands in the area. In addition, he has a moto-taxi which he uses to provide transportation services in his free time. All these activities help him get his family ahead.

Jesús would like to make some improvements to his home, particularly to his living room. In order to buy the materials and do the work, he has requested his first loan of 1,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa.

His greatest wish is to continue to obtain financial stability, in order to provide his family with a higher standard of living. The people who know him, like and trust him a great deal.
