A loan of $625 helped to buy bricks, sand, cement and gravel.

Pedro Alfonzo's story

Pedro Alfonso has a business selling basic grains in one of the most frequented markets of the city of León.

He starts work early in the morning - at 5am - in order to offer a variety of basic grains to his customers, before returning home at 4pm to relax. He works these hours seven days a week.

Pedro Alfonso is applying for a loan from "Ceprodel" that he will use to buy bricks, cement, iron, sand and gravel in order to build a small kitchen in his house. He wants to take advantage of this opportunity so that he can improve his and his family's quality of life.
