A loan of $625 helped to repair her 'mototaxi'.

Maximina's story

Maximina is 42 years old and single. She lives in her own home, in the urban part of Cruce Jaén - Nuevos Olmos sector, in Olmos district, more than two hours from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of Lambayeque region.

Maximina earns her living providing passenger transport services in her two 'mototaxis' (a vehicle that consists of a motorbike with a cabin for transporting passengers). She would like to use her loan to have her vehicles serviced and repaired. She needs to keep her mototaxis in good condition so that she can continue offering her customers a good service. With the support of this loan, she hopes to increase her profits and use these profits to buy another mototaxi. For this reason, she is requesting a loan for 1,700 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
