Nicanor's story

Nicanor is a 21 year old man who has a spouse and a son in his care. He lives with his spouse and his son in his own house. It’s mentioned that the quality of life in the community is at the subsistence level. Most of the residents work independently in commerce, agriculture and animal husbandry.

Nicanor lives in the Santa Rosa settlement in Morropón District, Piura Department. He has electricity. It’s also mentioned that about 100 families live in this community under the same conditions.

The commercial activity that Nicanor does is public mototaxi transportation on the Santa Rosa-Tambogrande route and vice versa. He also works in construction generating additional income to cover his personal expenses.

It’s worth mentioning that Nicanor has three years’ experience providing public transportation which has allowed him to retain his regular clientele.

Nicanor is currently asking Edpyme Alternativa for a new loan in the amount of 1500 new soles to service his vehicle (replace the motor) because this is a very profitable activity in the zone which in time will allow him to improve his family’s standard of living.
