A loan of $200 helped repair and maintenance expenses for his mototaxi.


Ever Lesmy's story

Ever is a 32 year-old father who lives together with his wife and one-year-old child in Camiña Chumpon, Paiján district, Ascope province, La Libertad region, more than two and a half hours from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of Lambayeque region.

For more than five years he has been providing a passenger and freight transport service in his mototaxi (a motorized vehicle consisting of a motorcycle with a carriage on the back that is used to transport people or goods). He works in the villages of Paiján district and, thanks to this business activity, he is able to have a stable income. He also works as an agricultural laborer in the area's fields.

Ever would like to carry out some maintenance work on his vehicle so that he can provide a quality service since his continual use of his vehicle and the bad state of repair of the roads have meant that his vehicle has started to suffer some mechanical failures. To achieve his goal he is requesting his first loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 500 nuevos soles.

Ever is quite a responsible person who has a great desire to be get ahead. The people who know him hold him in very high regard and consider him to be a trustworthy man.
