Robert's story

Robert is 28 years old and lives with his family in Lambayeque, located 30 minutes from the city of Chiclayo, the capital of the region of Lambayeque. In his community the majority of people work independently in commercial businesses and raise animals or work in agriculture. Robert works raising and selling animals, as well as working as an employee at a mill. He has been working in this field for 5 years. In that time he has acquired a lot of experience in the business, as well as many customers, who are mostly business people in the city of Chiclayo. Robert wants to make some improvements to his home, beginning with whitewashing his walls and putting up new walls as well as buy a refrigerator. This will allow him to give his family a better quality of life. In order to achieve his objective he is asking for credit from Edpyme Alternativa, a Kiva field partner, in the amount of 1500 nuevos soles (Peruvian currency).
