Pedro's story

Pedro is from the county Asedades, on the outskirts of Teustepe. He is married with two adult children. Pedro has been selling watches, belts, purses for 8 years. He previously worked as an electrician in the market, and he was always saving. But upon being unemployed he didn't know what to do, so a very close friend suggested that they go together to sell merchandise to another city. His money gradually increased. Currently, one of his children helps him tend to the business.

Today, Pedro is requesting this loan to buy watches, belts, wallets and calculators to sell. He also wants to further strengthen the business to increase his income in order to improve the infrastructure of his home.
