Santos's story

Santos is 25 years old, single and lives in his mother’s home in the periurban area in the district of Morrope. His home has water. The community is small, with approximately 100 families.

He makes hats and has four years of experience in this craft. He learned the business from his older brother, perfecting his craft in Lima. Currently, he has a workshop with two sewing machines and a presser.

Santos wants to acquire materials for the production of his caps, which are currently in great demand in the market, selling them in other cities such as Bagua and Jaen. That is why he has requested a loan of 4000 new Peruvian soles from Edpyme Alternativa. With this investment, he hopes to be able to meet the requested merchandise orders.

He is a quite responsible youth and a hard worker. Santos thanks in advance the people that will help him by financing his loan.
