A loan of $725 helped to do some home improvements.


Jose's story

José, 65, lives with his wife in Jayanca, a farming district in Lambayeque Department located 45 minutes from the city of Chiclayo in northern Peru.

José has been a Master Builder for the last 8 years, time which has made it possible for him to learn the occupation to perfection. He has an established customer base in the zone. Income he earns makes it possible for him to support his family and, above all, provide his wife with a better quality of life.

At present, his house is a bit deteriorated. He wants to use the loan to do some home repairs so has asked Edpyme Alternativa for a 2000 new sol loan to do so.
