Pedro Jacinto's story

Pedro Jacinto is married and has two children. His son is 12 years old and in fifth grade, while is 10-year-old daughter is in fourth. His wife is a homemaker. Pedro has worked for fifteen years as a technician at the Ministry of Education. Last year, he completed a graduate degree in Education Sciences at the Nueva Guinea campus of URACCAN (the University of the Regions of the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua). Pedro not only teaches, but is also a man who spends his free time working his family's plot of land. He plants a variety of crops to help improve his family's living conditions. It is worth mentioning that Pedro began working as a volunteer in a program organized by the Catholic Church in a region three hours away by horse, and that is how he got a position paid by the government. He helped his community by bringing the fruit of knowledge to the children of this remote village.

This is Pedro's eighth loan. He invested previous loans in making improvements to his home, and he will use this loan to install flooring.
