Luis Alberto's story

Luis Alberto is 23 years old, single, and lives with his parents in their own home in the province of Chiclayo, which has water and electricity service. In this area, people work in wholesale and retail, tourism, and in the surrounding areas, agriculture and livestock.

Luis Alberto has worked for three years driving a mototaxi (a form of transport used on short routes). He works in the morning and afternoon in the area where he lives. Despite a lot of competition, he transports a number of people. With his income, he can meet his needs.

He has asked for a loan of 1000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa to perform maintenance on his mototaxi and change a few spares in order to offer a good service and expand his customer base and improve his income to have a better quality of life. Luis Alberto is very well known as a trust-worthy, respectful, and responsible person by the customers who use his transport. His goal is to continue improving in life so that in the future he can buy another vehicle.
