Pedro Joaquin
Pedro is a 28-year-old young man. He is married and has a four-year-old son. His wife helps him with his business, where he sells food daily in the afternoons. In the morning he works as a freight carrier or hauling trash, for which he has a horse and cart. With the savings from this work he started selling food. His situation has improved with this business, since the sales profits allow him to provide sustenance for his family.
In the afternoons, he has a set spot at a roundabout in the capital, where he offers a variety of food: tacos, roast chicken, meat, sausage, fried green and ripe plantains, gallopinto (a rice and beans dish), soft drinks, and soda. He is requesting financing in order to be able to offer even more variety. He will purchase meat, chicken, greater quantities of sausage, 100 pounds of rice, sugar, beans, a large can of oil, fruits, and vegetables, so that he can continue offering his delicious dishes and gain more customers. Afodenic will make this investment possible.
