A loan of $550 helped to improve his home and make repairs to his vehicle.

Andrés's story

Andrés is 27 years old, single, and lives with his parents in Chacupe Bajo, in La Victoria district. This is an urban area that is characterized by the fact that it is also an agricultural area. It is located 15 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

Andrés provides a public passenger transport service in his 'mototaxi' (a vehicle which consists of a motorbike with a cabin in back which is used for transporting people to their destinations). He has been in this business for five years and it has helped him to cover his family's financial expenses. He also farms.

Andrés would like to make some improvements to his home so that his family can live in better conditions. He would also like to make some repairs to his vehicle. For this reason, he has requested a loan for 1,500 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
