A loan of $450 helped pay for pre-registration, registration, and school supplies for his children.

Pedro Joaquín's story

Pedro Joaquín E. E. is from the Condega municipality. He will use the loan to buy school supplies and to enroll his children. He is asking for the loan because he does not have all the money to do so now. He wants to enroll his children so that they do not have any difficulty starting the school year. He will also take part of the money so that his wife can work in her business selling basic grains. His wife works selling potatoes in a van.

Pedro is a workman for the Catholic Agricultural University of Trópico Seco (UCATSE). He has worked as a security guard for the university for over six years. He has done this type of work all of his life. He expects that the loan will be of much use; it will resolve his personal problems.

Pedro is married and has four school-age children in his care. They go to school and are currently in the primary grades. His parents do not live with him, but he continues to look after them.

This is Pedro’s first loan. He says that he will remain grateful to Ceprodel for the help they are offering him. It will help him solve the problems he now has. It is the first time that he has contracted a debt, and he expects to do well in order to keep working and not mar his credit record. That way he will make a good impression with Ceprodel, and they will continue taking care of him in the same manner in the future.
