A loan of $1,050 helped to repair a heavy cargo vehicle, since it is unusable and requires costly maintenance.

Pedro Alfonso's story

Pedro, age 51, is a very hard-working and enterprising man. He is known throughout the community as a very responsible and reliable person. He currently lives with his wife, daughter, and 10-month-old grandchild.
Pedro has worked in agriculture all his life, but he is now looking for other business opportunities such as planting vegetables; he has support from institutions such as the Centro Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria y Forestal (CENTA) [National Centre for Agricultural and Forest Technology] which provide technical assistance and help with agricultural supplies.
He will use this loan to repair a heavy cargo vehicle which is unusable and needs costly repairs. He has to change some parts of the motor which are very expensive.
Pedro's dream is to always cultivate the land with vegetables and fruit trees so that his children and grandchildren will never lack food and will be able to grow up strong and healthy.
