Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos is 39 years old, single, and lives in the city of Cayaltí, where most people work as farmers or ranchers or run small businesses. Cayaltí is in the Lambayeque Region along the northern coast of Peru.

Juan Carlos has run a business making metal goods for over three years. He makes doors, windows, and other objects in a shop next to his home. He has applied for a loan of 3,000 new soles from Edpyme Alternativa to increase his stock of wholesale metal supplies so he can fill customer orders and offer his customers better service. These investments and improvements will allow Juan Carlos to boost business earnings and his income, and thus improve his family's quality of life.
