A loan of $375 helped purchase wood to build rustic houses.


Cruz's story

Cruz is a 49 year old father who has two young children. Cruz lives in a rural area in the Bambamarca district in the city of Cajamarca in the region of the same name. Cruz works in construction building houses (foreman). He has been doing this in different parts of the province for more than 20 years. He learned this trade from his father many years ago, that is to say, he knows this profession well. He has a loyal clientele that recognizes the good work he does. This has made him well-known in the region. Cruz is requesting a loan of 1000 nuevos soles through Edpyme Alternativa so that he can buy wood since he has a contract to build a house of rustic materials. The competition for this trade is stable in his area. Cruz is a father who is dedicated to his work and is very responsible and honest. His greatest desire is to give his children a better quality of life.
