A loan of $800 helped to buy cardboard in bulk and make repairs to his vehicle.


Pedro Emperador's story

Pedro Emperador is 63 years old and lives with his life partner. He makes his living buying cardboard by traveling from neighborhood to neighborhood in his truck. After he collects the cardboard, he sells it wholesale to recycling industries who recyle it. He has spent many years in this business and he has gotten many clients. His neighbors state that he is a very hard-working and responsible person. The service he provides is the best in the area. He wants to increase his sales, but to do that he needs to make a new investment. He wants to take every opportunity presented to him because he believes he has to make a maximum effort to be able to to surpass his limits. It is with this way of thinking that he decided to request a loan from INTEGRAL that will allow him to buy cardboard in bulk and to make some repairs to his vehicle. The earnings he makes assure him that he will pay off his loan and in the same way give his family a better quality of life and financial security.
