Pedro Antonio
Pedro Antonio is 45 and lives in his home with his wife, who is 38, and their daughter, who is 13. Pedro makes a living by selling eggs and clothing. He uses his pickup truck to travel to various nearby communities in the area where he lives. He sells retail and also to stores that purchase orders of hundreds of eggs. His wife also has a business in the central market where she sells eggs and clothing. Sometimes, Pedro chooses to stay at his wife’s business to sell with her on days where there is more activity in the market. His business has flourished, but for Pedro, who is an enterprising man, he doesn’t want to leave it at that. He has decided to request a loan from Integral to buy a larger quantity of eggs and clothing to have enough to expand the route he makes in his pickup. This way he will be able to improve his and his family’s life.
