Pedro's story

Pedro, age 44, lives with his life partner and their children. He grows corn and beans, as well as coffee and oranges. Pedro has worked as a farmer for several years and has gained valuable experience that has allowed him to achieve better harvests. The land that he cultivates is located in an area that experiences high levels of agricultural activity and is located near his home. Pedro sells his crops in all of the areas surrounding his community. He has gained many customers who prefer to do business with him because everything he sells is of first-rate quality. In addition, he offers affordable prices and good service.


Pedro is an active man who is devoted to his work and eager to get ahead. He is always looking for opportunities that will help him become successful. Pedro believes that working hard and being persistent will keep him on track. During the most recent harvests, Pedro experienced many problems, resulting in losses that he hopes to recover. He wants to make a new investment that will increase production, so Pedro is requesting a loan from Apoyo Integral in order to buy corn, bean, and coffee seeds. He will also buy compost, insecticides, tools, and other supplies. Pedro has good credit references who vouch for his ability to repay this debt so that he can achieve financial security for his household.
