Remigio's story

Remigio is 36 years old. He is the father of 2 children and is happliy married. Remigio and his family live in a rural area in the Lambayeque district, in a small community of approximately 200 families.

For the past 5 years, Remigio has sold fresh fish round the houses of his community and its environs, from his mototaxi, as well as from home. Remigio knows his business well and has an established customer base.

He is seeking a loan of 2000 Soles from [the field partner] Edpyme Alternativa, so he can buy a greater quantity of fish and also to get into raising poultry. He wants to buy half-grown birds to fatten up, and the balanced poultry-feed that the birds will require. He would aslo like to make minor repairs to his mototaxi.

Remingio is an enterprising businessman and a long-time client of the field partner. He comes with good references, both personally and in terms of his credit-worthiness.
