Pedro's story

Pedro is the head of a household where he lives with his wife and four children, who are still studying; he makes a living setting up electrical installations. He works every day, from six o'clock in the morning until five o'clock in the afternoon. His business has been up and running for 21 years, and he learnt his trade through a friend, and he gained more experience over time. He will buy cables, power outlets, lightbulbs, screws, insulation materials, PVC, etc. These are important materials to do a good job and gain popularity. He hopes to fulfil the commitments he has already made in as little time as possible, and for a return on the investment with a higher profit margin. His vision is to make his business grow, provide for his family, and constantly support his children for them to receive an education.
