A loan of $825 helped to repair his vehicle's engine.


Pedro José's story

The best word to use to characterize Pedro is entrepreneur; he’s a person who has always been a fighter and determined to get ahead. Pedro is 42 years old, married and the father of two children. He’s known in his sector for having great charisma and because he always wants to help out other people.

Pedro currently works making candied peanuts and coconut candies. Thanks to this activity he’s able to generate the necessary income to cover all his household obligations. He’s been in this business for about 15 years and thanks to Pedro’s dedication to work his business sells his products in other cities near to where he produces them.

Pedro is currently facing the inconvenience that the vehicle he uses to transport the merchandise to the other towns is in need of repair but he does not have enough money to repair it. This is why Pedro is hoping for a loan that will make it possible to repair the vehicle’s engine so that he can continue to sell his products and continue to earn income needed to support his home.

Pedro has a great dream: that his children can access a good education so that in the future they will be able to enter the university so that they can have well-paying jobs and not have to go through the adversities he’s had to go through.
