He purchases everything that he needs for his office in the bookstores in the city, so the jobs he does with his sister are small.
The loan is to purchase 18 metal sheets, nails, and to pay for labor in order to repair the roof of his house, which is made of tile. It is in poor condition; some of the tiles are cracked, others sliding down the roof. When it rains, a lot of water leaks, getting everything in the house wet including his work materials. With the investment, he will improve his health, since humidity is good for mold, and there are two children in the house that won't run the risk of getting sick anymore.
Pedro wants to repair the front of his house and build steps, since it fills with water when it rains, and also wishes to repair the drainage system so that the rainwater flows better.
Todo lo que necesita para su oficina lo compra en las librerías de la ciudad, pues son pequeños los trabajos que realiza junto con su hermana.
El préstamo que solicita es para comprar 18 pliegos de lamina, clavos, pago de mano de obra; para reparar el techo de la casa que esta construida de teja, y se encuentra en mal estado, algunas están quebradas, otras resbalan y cuando llueve se filtra mucho el agua, mojando todo lo que tiene en la casa, hasta los materiales de su trabajo. Con la inversión mejorara las condiciones de salubridad, ya que por la humedad favorece la formación de hongos y hay dos niños en casa, por lo que ya no correrían el riesgo de enfermarse.
Don Pedro desea reparar la fachada de la casa, construirle gradas, ya que se llena de agua cuando llueve, además quiere reparar el desagüe para que circule mejor el agua lluvia.
