A loan of $1,075 helped to buy more raw materials for making sandals.

Santos Sabino's story

Santos is 45 years old, single, and has three children. He lives in his own home in an area of Salamanca, in José Leonardo Ortiz district.

Santos has been making and selling sandals for more than 12 years. He carries out his work from home and has an assistant. He sells his finished products in the markets in Chiclayo. He also takes some to sell in the villages in the mountains of Cajamarca.

Santos has decided to request a loan for 3,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa. He will use the loan to buy more raw materials for making his products which he is currently being offered at a low price. In this way, he will be able to fulfill his customers' demands and thereby make more profits.

Santos is a new client of Edpyme Alternativa and he has good personal and work references.
