A loan of $1,125 helped to pay maintenance and repair expenses for his moto-taxi.


Jose Miguel's story

José is 53 years old, he is separated, he lives in his own home (which has plumbing and electricity), and his home is located in the district of Olmos in the Lambayeque area. This area is known for its agriculture and livestock.

José works in agriculture on his own farmland where he grows passion fruit and lemon. When he harvests his fruit, his products are sold in different marketplaces around Lambayeque and Chiclayo. He earns enough income to cover his household expenses. He also earns money with his moto-taxi (a motorized vehicle for transporting supplies and people) and he offers transport services to people in the towns and city centers.

He is seeking a loan from Edpyme Alternativa in the amount of 3000 nuevos soles so that he can pay for maintenance on his moto-taxi. He has used it for a long time and it is beginning to suffer and break down. He also wants to buy compost and fertilizer for his crops.

He already had a loan through Kiva, it went well, and he is very grateful to the people that gave him the opportunity. José sends his thanks in advance to the people that will fund this loan.
