William's story

William is 27 years old and in a common-law relationship. He lives together with his partner in his parents' home which is located in the small village of Sialupe Baca, in Lambayeque. The quality of life in this community is one of subsistence. Most of the locals are self employed. They have sales businesses and livestock businesses, and also farm.

William has been raising and selling animals for five years. During this time, he has gained experience. His main customers are market traders from Chiclayo and traders from his area. William also works in a salt factory where he earns a weekly wage.

William has requested a loan for 3,500 soles from Edpyme Alternativa which he would like to use to build a room from adobe next to his father's house where he will live independently together with his family.
