Pedro's story

Pedro is 77 years old and retired. He is a widower and the father of seven children, but he just lives with a 27-year-old grandson. He lives in his own home.

Pedro plans to use the loan to buy cement, wires, nails and iron to repair the wall surrounding his property. This is his second loan, and he used the previous one to buy a sofa set.

His dreams are to improve his living conditions and to renovate his house.
