A loan of $750 helped to service his vehicle.

Elver's story

Elver, 28, is separated from his spouse; he has a son he lives with in his mother’s house in Tambogrande District, a district dedicated primarily to farming fruit that’s exported to other countries. It belongs to Piura Province in the region with the same name located over three hours from the city of Chiclayo.

He owns a mototaxi (motorized vehicle consisting of a motorcycle with an attached cabin to transport passengers and cargo) that he has been using to provide public transportation services for the last four years in Tambogrande District and surrounding areas. He also helps his mother distribute clothing that she sells. His mother and he share household expenses.

Continuous use of his mototaxi and the rough condition of the roads in his zone have caused the vehicle to start to have mechanical problems that require urgent attention to guarantee its continued good functioning so he’s asked Edpyme Alternativa for his first, 2000 new sol, loan.
