Pedro's story

Pedro C. is 54 years old and his house is located in Paraíso de Guayaquil. His wife is a wholesale merchant in the Montebello Market. He has one son who studies in a private school.

Pedro began a year ago with 5 breeder chickens. Selling them little by little, he was able to buy more. Now, he has a small stall in the principal market of Paraíso selling breeder chickens ready to cook. Sometimes his wife helps him plucking the chickens. One of the difficulties of his business is price, because of the competition that exists in the market.

With this loan he will buy 600 chickens in order to expand his business. In the future, he wants to enlarge his business and be able to remodel his house to ensure his family's future.
