Elmer's story

Elmer, 29, is single and lives with his parents in the Villa en Sol sector of José Leonardo Ortiz district. This is one of the most densely populated districts in the Lambayeque region, and is mainly known for having high poverty rates, since the people generally live in outlying urban zones that lack basic services.

Elmer offers personal transportation services by motortaxi, traveling all over the area, from his district to the city of Chiclayo. He has been doing this for five years now, and it allows him to pay the family's expenses. He wants to go through the licensing procedures to drive cars, which would allow him to offer another, better paying, service. Therefore, he thought it best to request his first loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 500 soles.
