A loan of $500 helped to buy equipment and cleaning supplies for performing maintenance and repairs around the pet cemetery.

Pedro Julio's story

Sr. Pedro lives in the District of Chinchaya, which is located 40 minutes away from the central part of the city. In this area, the residents raise dairy cattle. The women are in charge of planting vegetables while the men wash sand and stones taken from the river so that they can be used for construction.

Sr. Pedro has lived in this area his entire life. He previously had a job washing sand, but now that he is a bit older, his current job involves maintaining a pet cemetery. Pedro came to Emprender thanks to his son Eusebio, who recommended that he take advantage of the loans.

Sr. Pedro is a cheerful and hardworking person. He is requesting a loan to pay for maintenance of the pet cemetery. His work consists primarily of digging new pet graves and making sure the place is always kept clean, which has associated expenses such as the purchase of equipment and cleaning supplies. Sr. Pedro is grateful to Emprender for his previous loan, which he utilized successfully by purchasing tools.
