Jose Martin's story

José Martin is 38 years old and lives with his wife in the Lagunas district in the Chiclayo province of the Lambayeque region on Peru's northern coast. Here the people make a living in farming, trade and cattle raising. José makes a living as a build. He is hired by organisations and private individuals in the local area. José has applied for a loan of 3500 Nuevo Soles from "Edpyme Alternativa" in order to buy building materials for his home. This will allow him to earn a higher living for his family.
