A loan of $1,100 helped to purchase wood and scaffolding.


Elmer Eduardo's story

Elmer is 29 years old. He is unmarried and lives at home with his parents. He has no family responsibilities. His home is located in the district of José Leonardo Ortiz, a few minutes from the city of Chiclayo. It is a growing urban community and has its own water and electricity.

Elmer is a professional in the construction field. He has approximately two years of experience in this field and this enables him to generate weekly income. Elmer has one spinning top (cement mixer), wire cutters, a drill, and other tools that facilitate his work.

Since his work is in higher demand, Elmer is currently applying for a loan of 3000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa to invest in the purchase of wood and scaffolds.
Elmer is known for his work and his effort. He wants to get ahead and support his parents any way he can.
