A loan of $725 helped to service and repair his motor taxi.


Antonio's story

Antonio is 55 years old, married and the father of three children. They live in their own house in the city of Morropón in the region of Piura, some four hours from Chiclayo, the capital of the region of Lambayeque. He has provided transportation services for the past three years. He transports people in his motor taxi, a vehicle consisting of a motorcycle and a cabin for the passengers. Antonio is well known in his community and in high demand from his customers. He wants to use the loan to service and repair his motor taxi. He needs to keep his vehicle in good condition to be able to keep on providing a good service to his customers. He hopes that this loan will help him to increase his earnings and his family to progress. Therefore he thought it was appropriate to come to the microfinance institution Edpyme Alternativa and apply for a loan of 2,000 nuevos soles. Antonio is a returning client of Edpyme Alternativa; he met his previous obligations in a timely manner.
