Jesús is 28 years old and lives with his wife in the Santa Rosa district in the province of Chiclayo. This district is located behind the Pimentel resort, and is 20 minutes from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the Lambayeque department.

He has worked making all types of bread in his home for more than a year. The bread he makes has a good flavor, which appeals to his neighbors in the community so that to date, they prefer and purchase the bread he makes. The income he makes from this activity help him cover his personal expenses and those of his family.

Jesús wants to expand his business to also sell cold cuts, which he would sell as a complementary product. Jesus would like to purchase all types of cold cuts to sell. In order to do this, he has requested a loan of 1500 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa.
