A loan of $925 helped to maintain his mototaxi.

Jose Orlando's story

José is 36 years old, and is married with two young children. He lives in his own house which is located in a small community in Chepén district.

During the week, from Monday to Friday, José works providing public transport with a mototaxi (a motorcycle with a cab for transporting people), which is his property. Weekends are spent selling vegetables at the market in his area. His wife helps him with the household by selling food, an activity that she has been working in for 8 years.

José is requesting a loan through Alternative Edpyme of 2,500 New Soles to perform maintenance on his mototaxi, with the relevant updated documents, and to buy more merchandise for his vegetable business.
