A loan of $550 helped to perform maintenance and to buy replacement parts for his motorcycle.


Luis Britaldo's story

Luis, age 30, lives in his own house in the rural zone of Pacora. It is a small community with approximately 100 families. It is 30 minutes from the city of Lambayeque. His home has electricity and water service.

Luis provides public transportation service with his own “mototaxi” (three wheeled motorized vehicle). He does this work in the area surrounding where he lives. He has been doing this for several years. During this time he has been acquiring experience in the field and acquiring established customers.

Luis needs to perform maintenance on his taxi. That is why he has come to Edpyme Alternativa to request a loan for 1,500 soles. With the loan he will be able to buy the replacement parts he needs in order to be able to offer his customers better service.

Luis is a hard-working father of very good character. The people that know him hold him in high esteem, and they have affection and respect for him.
