Pedro De Jesus's story

Pedro is 30 years old. He makes a living growing corn and locoro (a vine with edible flowers often used in pupusas). When the planting season has passed, he also works as a day laborer on a farm near his house. With his earnings from these two jobs, Pedro is able to pay his household expenses. He lives in a house he owns with his wife.

Pedro is requesting a loan in order to buy some necessary supplies for his crops such as compost, fertilizers, seeds, weedkiller, etc. in order to maintain his crops and stabilize his family's finances.
