Pedro lives in Chinchaya area which is located forty minutes from the city center. In this town, the women raise dairy cows and grow vegetables and the men wash building sand and stone which they pull from the river.
Pedro has lived here his whole life. He used to wash sand too but, as he is a little older, he now works maintaining a pet cemetery. He came to our institution thanks to his son Eusebio who recommended him to work with loans. Pedro is a cheerful and very hard-working person and he is requesting this loan to buy new tools as his work consists mainly of digging new graves for pets and making sure the place always looks clean.
El Sr. Pedro vive en la zona de chinchaya que esta ubicada a cuarenta minutos del centro de la ciudad. En esta localidad los comunarios se dedican a la crianza de vacas lecheras y al sembradío de verduras en el caso de las mujeres y los hombres al lavado de arena y piedra para construcción que sacan del rio. El Sr. Pedro vive acá toda su vida y antes se dedicaba a lavar arena pero como ya es un poco mayor de edad ahora trababa realizando el mantenimiento en el cementerio de mascotas. Él llegó a nuestra institución gracias a su hijo Eusebio quien lo recomendó para que trabaje con préstamos, el Sr. pedro es una persona alegre y muy trabajadora y solicita el préstamo para la compra de herramientas nuevas, ya que su trabajo consiste principalmente en cavar nuevas tumbas para mascotas y hacer que el lugar siempre se vea limpio.
