A loan helped to buy more merchandise and expand his business.


Juan De Dios's story

Juan de Dios is 66 years old, married and lives with his family in the Pacasmayo district, a fairly commercial zone located in the La Libertad region, more than two hours from the city of Chiclayo in the Lambayeque region.

He owns a bodega that he runs out of his home. He sells a diverse range of everyday products along with essential necessities and groceries. The business is 25-years-old and has a loyal and steady clientele. Thanks to this, he has been able to provide for his family and give them a good start in life during this time.

Juan de Dios wants to expand his business by buying more merchandise to satisfy demand during the holiday season. For this reason, he has asked Edpyme Alternativa for a $375 loan.
