Jorge Luis's story

Jorge is a young man of 25 who lives with his parents in the urban area of Chiclayo. He is known as a hard-working young man who has a great desire to improve himself. He would like to become independent from his parents and own his own home.

Jorge provides a public transport service with his motorcycle taxi. A motorcycle taxi is a motorbike with a cabin in back for transporting passengers. Jorge has two motorcycle taxis. He drives one himself and hires out the other one. Jorge has been in this business for five years and his routes are based around Moshoqueque market, where there are a lot of people.

Jorge is requesting a loan for 2,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa which he will use to buy two engines for his motorbikes. This will improve his service and make him more money. Jorge would like to save up so that, in the future, he can own his own taxi.

Jorge is a long-standing client of Edpyme Alternativa and has a good repayment history.
