Pedro Ricardo
Pedro, 54, lives in the peri-urban zone of Guayaquil. In order to support his family, he had to invest their savings in supplies for a store. His dream was always to follow in the same footsteps of his parents who owned a shop when he was a child.

He has put many years of hard work and dedication into working in his store in order to enlarge it. Now, he works from 7:00 am until 11:00 pm every day in his shop selling canned goods, rice, sugar etc.

He wants to use the loan to enlarge his store by buying more supplies such as sausages and drinks. The profits will secure his family’s future. One of his dreams is to own a Minimarket.
