A loan of $525 helped to buy four tires in order to continue providing a good service in school transportation.

Pedro Pablo's story

Don Pedro is 46 years old, married and the father of two children who are 17- and 18-year-old students. His wife is a seamstress and nowadays Pedro has his own business, a route in a small minibus that acts as a school bus.

Initially, he worked in agriculture on his parents' land. Years later he began to work as a private chauffeur. Then, he inherited from his father a part of the land which he sold and bought the minibus and that, up to today, has been his means to help his family get ahead, although now his earnings are less because of the cost of fuel.

He has acquired this loan from Afodenic with the purpose of maintaining his vehicle by buying four tires in order for it to continue working in good condition and in good service. He is happy for this since he didn’t have all of the capital for this purchase and he will pay in affordable installments.
