A loan helped to buy products and ingredients to prepare foods.


Pedro Martin's story

Pedro Martin and his family live in Puerto Lopez city, a place of beautiful beaches and tourist attractions that are much-visited throughout the year. Not long ago, the place started to return to normality following the COVID-19 emergency.

Pedro is a hard-working man who does what he can to give his family what they need. He does this in part thanks to the help of loans. Pedro has a cart from which he sells fried snacks with roasted plantain and cola drinks. Every afternoon, he goes out to sell in the city. Pedro knows that the pandemic is still happening so he always goes out well-protected. This way, he can earn a living while still hoping that life will return to normal.

This loan will be used to buy products and ingredients to prepare foods. Pedro hopes to continue counting on the help of loans.
