Elmer's story

Elmer is an existing client of Edpyme Alternativa. He is 28 years old and has two children in his care. Elmer lives in his parents' home which is located in the rural area of Pítipo district. This is a quiet community where people mainly farm and raise lifestock.

Elmer's business is buying and selling dairy cattle. He has several years experience in his business and he has known how to run it well. Elmer directs all of the profits that he makes towards his children. He also owns a motorcycle taxi with which he provides a public transport service. This makes him additional income.

Elmer is requesting a loan for 2,000 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa to buy a head of cattle which he will fatten and later sell. This will be his first step in expanding his business. Elmer has a great desire to improve himself as he would like to provide his children with the best education and quality of life.
