A loan of $1,000 helped to buy clothes in order to continue selling.


Simón Pedro's story

Simón attended school until the fifth grade. He is married, and has three children who are 8, 12 and 19 years old and are currently in school.

Simón is a businessman. He sells clothes in the market with his wife. He has approximately eight years' experience in his business. He is also a mason. He begins work at 6:00 a.m. and ends at 2:00 p.m.

He will invest the funds in buying clothes so that he can continue selling. He has received loans from Credicampo, and has paid off all of them punctually. His dreams are to continue working in order to provide a better quality of life to his family, and that his children stay in school.
