Jose Santos's story

José, 54, is single and lives in his own house that has electricity and running water, located in the Pacanga district, La Libertad department. This is an agricultural and cattle raising area.

For the last 5 years he has had his own business in his house where he sells various staple goods and sweets. He has a good customer base and the income is used to cover his personal expenses.
José has noticed that his business has grown well since the beginning. He wishes to expand it by buying more staple merchandise and cookies. He's going to purchase his products in big quantities to keep prices down. That's why he decided to request a loan of 2000 new sols from Edpyme Alternativa.

José is very hardworking and responsible and he wants to have more earnings to have a larger and better supplied business.
