Jose Pablo's story

Jose is 25 years old and lives in his own house with his wife and children. He does not have all the basic services as his house is located in the rural district of northern Peru, Tambogrande. Most people in the area develop agriculture, livestock and crafts. He has proven to be a very responsible and punctual person, as this is his second loan with Alternative Edpyme supported by Kiva. This time Jose wants to invest in his business of selling fish, as well as food for other animals.

Jose devotes himself to the purchase and sale of fresh fish which he sells on the streets of his neighborhood. He has clientele that purchase from him due to the good quality of his product. With the revenue derived he will be able to afford his family's daily expenses. His wife raises and sells poultry so in this way they have additional financial support for their home.
