A loan of $750 helped to buy more stock for his grocery store.

Jose Eladio's story

30-year old José is married and has a son. He lives in his father-in-law’s house located in the district of José Leonardo Ortiz, twenty minutes from the town of Chiclayo. The house has electricity and water.

José has a grocery store in the house where he sells basic supplies to his neighbours. The business has been operating for several years so José has a regular and loyal clientele. He also owns a motortaxi (motorbike with a cab on the back to transport passengers). Thanks to these two jobs he has been able to support his family and get ahead.

José now wishes to expand his business and buy more supplies so that the store is better stocked and he can satisfy his customers’ requests. He also wishes to spend some money maintaining his motortaxi. He has approached Edpyme Alternativa for a loan of 2000 soles.

He has good references, and the people who know him say that he is a hardworking, willing person.
