A loan of $925 helped to buy an industrial welding machine.

Jose Walter's story

José is a 33 year-old client who has one school-age child. He lives in his father's home in the rural area of Lambayeque district. His home has piped water and electricity. It is located in a small community made up of approximately 100 families.

For five years, José has been working as a metal worker. This work has allowed him to provide his son with an education and enjoy some comforts. The work does not make big profits but José feels positive and keen to improve himself. For this reason, he has decided to invest in his business so that he can make more income and grow in his activity.

José is requesting a loan for 2,500 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa which he will put together with some savings that he has in order to buy an industrial welding machine.

This loan will be very useful to José since his business will benefit a lot.
