Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos Alberto (27) is the father of a family. He lives with them in La Arenita, a marginal urban area in the Paiján district (Ascope province), in La Libertad region. The area is about three hours away from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the Lambayeque region.

Carlos provides tire repair and maintenance services from his tire repair workshop. His clients are drivers from the area, mostly motorbike taxi drivers; his business is quite well known and he has a steady clientele. He also repairs and maintains motorbike taxis, providing an end-to-end service.

Carlos would like to buy some tools to improve the services he offers. For this reason, he has applied to Edpyme Alternative for his first loan, $550, to help him achieve his goals.

He is a responsible person with a strong ambition to get ahead. He works hard every day to succeed in his business and support his family.
