Mario's story

Mario is 63 years old. He lives with his wife in his own home and his children live independently. His home only has electricity. It is located in Morropón district, in Piura department. The people in these areas farm, raise livestock and make handicrafts.

Mario's business is providing a public transport service as he owns his own motorcycle taxi. He works mornings and afternoons, transporting people who live in Morropón and the small villages in the area. He has his own customer base and is able to cover his household expenses with the income that he makes.

Mario has requested a loan for 1,200 Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa so that he can have maintenance work carried out on his motorcycle taxi and make some repairs to his home. Mario is very well known in his area because he is always looking out for his family's well-being with the goal of providing them with a better quality of life.
