A loan of $500 helped to buy tools for maintaining a pet cemetery.

Pedro Julio's story

Pedro lives in Chinchaya area which is located forty minutes from the city center. In this town, the women raise dairy cows and grow vegetables and the men wash building sand and stone which they pull from the river.

Pedro has lived here his whole life. He used to wash sand too but, as he is a little older, he now works maintaining a pet cemetery. He came to our institution thanks to his son Eusebio who recommended him to work with loans. Pedro is a cheerful and very hard-working person and he is requesting this loan to buy new tools as his work consists mainly of digging new graves for pets and making sure the place always looks clean.
