Juan Pedro's story

Juan was selling seafood as a street vendor, however with relocation in the town, he now has a stall selling seafood in the market. Thus he decided to continue working in this type of sales.

His work schedule is from Mondays to Sundays, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. One of his difficulties is the need to transport his merchandise, since he does not own a vehicle.

Juan is married and has three children, who are in pubic school. His wife sells household items,

He will use the loan to purchase fish and other seafood. One of his goals for the next five years is to have his own shop and to become more profitable.
