Manuel Augusto's story

Manuel is 40 years old and lives with his wife and son in their own home, which only has light service. It is located in the Túcume district in the Lambayeque department. This area the people work in farming, livestock, and handicrafts.

Manuel works driving his mototaxi (a mode of transport used by people on short trips). He works in the morning and afternoon in the area where he lives and its various villages. Despite the competition that exists, he transports a good number of people. He also works raising poultry, and once it reaches its ideal size, he sells them at different markets in his area. Having more income will allow him to meet his family's needs.

He has asked for a loan of 1500 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa to do maintenance on his mototaxi, purchase more animals, and feed for the animals so that they will be well feed, and he can offer them at a good price to his customers. With the income he earns, he will cover his loan and give his family a better quality of life. Manuel is well known for being a trustworthy, respectful, and responsible person with the customers who use his vehicle. His goal is to continue improving in life and to give his son a better educational opportunity.
