A loan of $200 helped to buy fruit.

Victor's story

Víctor, 58, is married living with his wife and two children in the Primero de Mayo sector of José Leonardo Ortiz District, one of Lambayeque Region’s most crowded districts, known primarily for its high rate of poverty since the people generally live in marginal urban zones that lack basic utilities.

For the last five years he’s had a fruit stand located outside the Atusarías Foodstuffs Market. He offers a variety of fruit daily to his customers. This business is an important source of help for his family. Víctor’s business always has customers because they prefer him because of his good treatment and kindness.

He wants to acquire more merchandise so he thought it would be a good idea to ask Edpyme Alternativa for a 500 new sol loan so that he can get the fruit at a lower price and thus have higher income.
