A loan of $200 helped to maintain his mototaxi to continue offering his customers good service.


Javier Sebastian's story

Javier, 41, lives with his family in his own home with water and electricity located in the rural area of the district of Chepén in the department of La Libertad. The inhabitants of this area work in agriculture and livestock. Javier has been driving his own mototaxi for several years. (This transportation is used to go short distances, with a maximum of three people.) He works in the same area in which he lives, in spite of the competition. He tries as hard as possible and from very early to move a large number of passengers to their various destinations so he can have a higher income to pay for his expenses and family necessities. The loan of 500 PEN that he has requested from Edpyme Alternativa will be for maintenance on his mototaxi, because it is showing some mechanical flaws. His goal is to continue offering his customers good service. Javier is a person who wants to work and get ahead in life to be able to continue helping his family improve and reach their goals in life.
