Luis Enrique's story

Luis Enrique is 52 years old, married, and has 2 dependent children. He lives with his family in the city of Morropon in the Piura department, about four hours from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the Lambayeque region.

For more than 10 years, he has been making a living as an agricultural worker. He also offers passenger transport services in a mototaxi ( a mobile unit that consists of a motorcycle with a cabin on top to transport people). With these two activities he can cover the household expenses. He is very well-known in his line of work and in the region where he lives. His house is currently in a deteriorated state. He wants to make some repairs to it, which will help him to improve the living conditions of his family. To do this, he is requesting from Edpyme Alternativa a loan of 1,500 Peruvian soles. He has good references from work and from people in his community. He is responsible, and has made his payments on prior loans on time.
