Trinidad's story

Trinidad, 58, lives with his family in his own home. He does not have basic amenities and is located in a rural area in the Tambo Grande district, in Piura department. This area is characterized by agriculture, cattle raising and handicrafts.

For several years Trinidad has sold basic supplies (milk, rice, oil, sugar, toilet paper, tuna, etc.) and beverages. He has operated his business from his own home for convenience and security. He tries, with the profits obtained from the sale of his products, to cover all of his expenses and to raise his family’s standard of living.

In order to help his business he has requested a loan of 2,000 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternativa, so that he can buy more merchandise to stock his store. His goal is to see his business grow and to have the necessary items to offer his customers.

Trinidad is a responsible, dedicated and hardworking person who is concerned about providing more advantages and future opportunities to his children.
