William's story

William is 38 years old, married, and has two children in his care. He lives in his parents' home which is located in José Leonardo Ortiz district. He lives in a medium-sized community which was created almost 12 years ago.

William's business is selling 'rocotos', a traditional Peruvian and Bolivian pepper. He sells his produce wholesale in the Los Pathos Wholesale Market. He owns his own stall and runs the business together with his wife. Thanks to his business, he has been able to support his family and get them ahead in life over the years.

William would like to acquire more merchandise since he has a lot of demand. For this reason, he has requested a loan for 1,500 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
