A loan of $550 helped to buy assorted sweets.


Pedro Antonio's story

Pedro Antonio H. lives in the city of Medellín where for 28 years he has been a peddlar throughout the streets in the city center. Pedro learned his trade very well and has dedicated his life to selling sweets, cigarettes and chewing gum. He works tirelessly from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. With his earnings he is able to support his family and thanks to his job in the street he was able to meet his wife, who is also a peddlar, with whom he has four children.

Since Pedro wants to expand his business to offer a wider variety of products he decided to ask for a loan to buy assorted sweets. He plans to use his earnings to improve his lifestyle and carry out some household repairs his home is in need of.
