Jose Andres's story

Jose is 56 years old and he has 3 children, all of whom are independent. His house is located in a large and beautiful community located in the district of Chepen in the department of La Libertad.

Jose sells fresh drinks from a cart in the city of Chepen. For many years and from the very early mornings he has been selling barley, soy, and other flavored drinks to the passers-by of a main street in the city. Jose has ample experience in the business and he has a loyal client base.

Jose requests a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) in the amount of 2000 nuevos soles to purchase a freezer for his business. This will help him store ice, one of the products that he uses for his business. He will also be able to conserve his drinks, especially during the summer months.

Jose is a responsible and calm person. Those who know him consider him to be a hardworking and honest person.
