A loan of $250 helped to increase his lumber supply.

Pedro's story

Mr. Pedro M., 41 years old, is married to Elsa Franco, 37 years old. The couple has five children, three school-aged. They live in their own house thanks to an inheritance received from his grandfather. Today the house is both his home and his workplace. Since he was very young he worked in carpentry working first as an employee. Seeing the need, wanting to get ahead and being married with children, in 2002 his grandfather decided to support and invest in him and that is how he built his own carpentry business. With his experience and hard work he was able to very quickly gain many customers. Today, thanks to the income from his business he is able to afford the household expenses, his children's studies and to improve their quality of life. The loan is needed to increase his lumber supply to provide better service to his customers.
