Pedro Jose's story

Pedro is 56-years old, married and has two young children. He is a native of Leon, an area in the west of the country. Pedro is known for being hard-working, responsible and having a desire for self-improvement. In his free time, he enjoys his children's company. Pedro currently works day after day to offer his children some financial and emotional stability and to help them become good people. His dream will be realized once he sees his children with professional careers. Thanks to his efforts and his desire to get ahead, Pedro has a business selling brand-name and generic medications such as: acetaminophen, Panadol, Tabcin, Glibenclamide, Loratadine, Talerdin, Renikan, Corilin, kidi, medoc and mefenamic acid. He works about ten hours a day traveling around to sell his products to the different pharmacies and general stores in his neighborhood. The goal of this loan is to invest in working capital and stock up his business so that, in the not too distant future, he can earn more income. Pedro is grateful for the help of the Kiva lenders, who offer low-income people and poor countries, like Nicaragua, the chance for a dignified means of work.
