A loan of $375 helped to purchase large quantities of spare parts to stock his business.

Oscar Alberto's story

Oscar is a hard-working and very responsible man. He currently lives in his own home which he worked very hard to build. He lives with his wife and three children, and he is responsible for supporting the family. Oscar lives in a small community called "Mochumi". It is a rural place which is home to approximately 100 families and is located in Chiclayo province, in Lambayeque department.

Oscar's business is selling bicycle and motorcycle parts. He makes his sales from a space that he has set up in his own home and he has been in his business for approximately three years. Oscar tells us that the idea to set up this business came about during a conversation with his wife. They have always been alert as to how they can get ahead and improve their children's education and food. As Oscar lives in a rural area, the need for motorcycle parts is continuous.

The amount that Oscar invested in his business was not enough to deal with the demand that he is currently experiencing. For this reason, he has decided to request a loan for 1,000 soles from Edpyme Alternativa. He will use the money to buy spare parts and other very important accessories that he needs to satisfy his customers so that they can work better in their vehicles.

Oscar has gained the affection and respect of his neighbors who provide good references both for him and his family. He has gained this respect through his good nature and his good values.
