A loan of $375 helped to buy more beans to sell and to provide maintenance to his motorcycle cargo carrier.


Manuel Abel's story

Manuel is 26 years old, lives with his family in his own house, with no running water or electricity, located in a rural zone of the district of Túcume which belongs to the department of Lambayeque. This zone is known for agricultural and farming activities, and tourism. (There are archaeological sites.)

Manuel has his own motorcycle cargo carrier, and works transporting sacks of beans, and for 3 years he has carried his beans to market to sell. Since his business is growing he decided that this is a good time to ask for a loan of 1000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa in order to buy more beans to sell and to maintain his motorcycle cargo carrier in order to have a good transport service and with the money he borrows he can provide a better quality of life for his family.

Manuel is a person with many ambitions in life, with the only objective being to obtain a better future for his family and give his children opportunities to study so that they can achieve their goals in the future.
