Jose De La Rosa's story

José, 59, lives with his family in his own house that has running water and electricity and is located in Olmos District that belongs to Lambayeque Department. This zone is noted for farming and animal husbandry.

For several years now José has been selling groceries (milk, rice, oil, sugar, toilet paper, tuna, eggs, snacks), vegetables and beverages. He’s installed his store at home for his comfort because this way he can take care of customers at any time he wants. He tries to use profits from the sale of his products to cover all household daily needs.

To stock his business he’s asking Edpyme Alternativa for a 2000 new sol loan to buy larger amounts of merchandise (foodstuffs) to stock the store; his only objective is that the business be larger and with more stock available for his customers. With the profits he will be able to repay the loan and improve his quality of life. José is a responsible, hardworking, dedicated person with the goal of helping his family get ahead in life.
