Pedro Antonio's story

Pedro is 48 years old. He never had the opportunity to attend school, due to his parents sending him to work at a young age. He lives with his wife and a granddaughter. since his children are independent adults.

He has 15 years' experience in cattle handling and works as an artisan fisherman, because he lives close to a mangrove bay. He manages to provide for his family through the sale of fish. Pedro learnt how to do these jobs out of necessity to pull through, since he cannot find a formal job because he was unable to study.

Pedro needs this CREDICAMPO loan to buy two calves for fattening. With this, he will be able to ensure a better income after a certain period, since he will sell the animals. He will use the money to pay back the loan and to feed his family.

Pedro plans to save and work hard for the future. He wants to build a house, because the one he lives in is not his own.
