Carlos Jose's story

Carlos is a 51-year-old father who lives in his own house with his wife and children. Their home receives services, such as water and electricity, and is located along the Moore Passageway in the District of Chepén, which is an hour away from the Department of La Libertad. This area is known for its residents who engage in the agriculture, livestock, and tourism sectors.


For the past 10 years, Carlos has worked as a driver in the public transportation sector. He is part of a union and drives an automobile back and forth that can hold a maximum of four passengers. His route runs from Pacasmayo to Chepen. However, his problem is that his vehicle runs on gasoline and takes up a large expense. He does not earn enough money to continue his business on a daily basis.


For this reason, he is requesting a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 2000 PEN so that he can convert his operating system from gasoline to natural gas. This will allow his work to become profitable and help him earn more money to continue supporting his family.


Carolos is a person who is well-known in the city for being responsible, showing respect to his passengers, and wanting to provide his children better opportunities in life.
