Pedro Faustino's story

Pedro is a 47-year-old family man, living with his wife and their two children in one of the rural communities of the Las Lomas department, a rural area of the Piura region located at more than three hours and a half from Chiclayo, the capital city of the Lambayeque region.

He runs a bakery and a shop he has established in his house. In the shop he sells to his customer a variety of everyday products, among which general merchandise products and groceries. In the bakery he produces bread, mainly during the afternoon. Pedro always tries to offer his customers good quality products and to treat them well, and this is why he can count on regular customers. The money he earns with these activities is used to cover the economic expenses of his family.

Pedro wishes to buy more ingredients and products to expand his activities and obtain better incomes that will allow him to keep on growing as a businessman and to improve his family’s quality of life. For this reason he has judged it necessary to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a 700 PEN loan that will help him reach his goal.
