Pedro Antonio's story

Pedro Antonio, 37, is married and has two children, ages 14 and 8. He is from the town of Sauce. Sauce is a place located in the northern part of the country, which is characterized as a milk-producing zone.

To support him economically, he has a small grocery store located in his home. This business arose as a necessity to obtain more income to support his family, because the salary that he accrues as head of the household is very low, and it was not allowing him to offer his children security and economic stability.

A small grocery store is a store where products for daily consumption are sold in small quantities, such as: rice, beans, sugar, oil, bags of coffee, packages of tomato sauce, and boxes of matches.

He needs financing to be able to invest in working capital, stock his small grocery store, and offer better attention to his clients. Pedro Antonio appreciates the help that the Kiva investors offer to people with few resources and poor countries such as Nicaragua, by providing a means of dignified work.
