A loan of $400 helped to buy more vegetables to sell.


Armando Juan's story

Armando is 64 years old and lives with his wife in Cayalti. The place has seen an increase in commercial activity in recent years. It is located about an hour from the city of Chiclayo. He sells vegetables, wholesale and retail, in a stall in the market in the area. He gets his merchandise very early to distributors so that it reaches the wholesale food market to give the merchandise to their clients, mostly retail market vendors. He has become known in the business thanks to the good care he provides his customers. Armando wants to increase his business and believes it’s appropriate to increase his level of inventory, specifically to buy more vegetables to sell as this product is of high demand. To reach his goal he has requested a loan from Edpyme Alternativa for 1000 Peruvian nuevos soles.
