Pedro Antonio's story

As the father of a family who is responsible for two children, Sr. Pedro Antonio has the duty to support them in their studies so that they develop, become professionals, and become good people like him and his wife. He is originally from the town of El Sauce, where he has lived all his life. He has been a worker at a government institution for many years.

Thanks to his efforts and his work, he has succeeded in giving the best he could to his family, improving their house so that they had better living conditions, educating his children in the best way, and all this was also with the support of Ceprodel, since it had the confidence in him to grant him three loans for the construction of his house.

One of his present needs is to acquire some financing for the purchase of school supplies, uniforms, and shoes for his two children, because the school year is approaching and he needs make sure that his little ones are prepared and thus continue contributing to their development. For this cause, he is hoping for the loan to proceed with the school support of his little ones.
