A loan of $1,300 helped to buy flour, sugar, yeast and oil.

Pedro Antonio's story

Pedro, an enterprising young man and a native of Esteli, is the father of three children. He is a merchant who sells “bolis” (frozen ice pops). He tells us that he benefited from the previous loan and that it was a great help and he is very grateful since he obtained the raw materials to make his products. He notes that the more popular consumption products he offers the more customers he has.

His goal is to be able to start a bakery since there are none in his community and stores in the area offer few such products. Consequently he is requesting a new loan to purchase flour, sugar, yeast and oil. His objective is to begin selling bread as well as “bolis”. He wants to succeed and give his family a better quality of life and have a business that is economically sustainable.
