Pedro's story

Pedro is 47 years old. He lives with his wife and their three children. Five years ago he began producing cacao and raising guinea pigs. His biggest challenge has always been controlling disease and improving the production of cacao.

He is requesting a loan to buy fertilizer to maintain his cacao. He wants to prevent disease and obtain a better product to offer his clients.

With his extra earnings he wants to improve his house. Pedro is considered to be a responsible, hard-working person who loves his children and always seeking the wellbeing of his family.
