Pedro's story

Pedro C. is 45 years old and lives in the municipality of Soyapango. He lives with his wife, who works in the home, and his two small daughters, 4 and 6 years old respectively, who are both studying. Pedro is a hard-working man who puts for a great effort to provide for his family and improve his life. He works selling bottled water, juices, and sodas, which he sells in the heavily trafficked areas in the center of Soyapango. During the course of the day Pedro sells in different locations like the areas outside of malls, markets, and high schools depending on the best time to sell his products. Pedro is applying for the loan in order to buy the products he sells wholesale as well as a cooler big enough to put all his drinks inside and ice. Even though Pedro has a very humble job he is able to earn enough to support his family. This is why he works so hard moving from location to location in order to earn more money and provide for his family.
