Samuel's story

Samuel is 58 years old and lives with his wife and daughter in the rural area of Zaña, where the population works in agriculture and trade of small animals, two hours from the city of Chiclayo in the Lambayeque Region on the northern coast of Peru.

For the past 15 years he has worked in metal fabrication. He is known for his work in the community, and he has requested this loan from Edpyme Alternativa of 4,000 nuevo soles to buy spare parts (metal, soldering iron, adhesive, oxygen, and other items) which will allow him to work in a better way.
