Pedro's story

Pedro has 14 years experience in the production of insecticides, following work with friends who made their living to support their families with this type of business. For 13 years, Pedro has taken on this business to make a living for himself and his family. His business is in his home, producing insecticides per client request. Pedro works 6 days a week, at which time he produces and delivers his product. The insecticides are used to kill rodents, cockroaches, ants, mosquitoes, and other. His wife helps him with the sales at home as neighbors purchase his product.

Pedro is applying for a loan to buy raw material and to make labels. He indicates that his sales have grown and that his current income does not cover for the increase in client demand.

Pedro is 47 years old and has four children who study. His wife helps in the business and considers that the loan will increase her husband’s income which will benefit their home and help meet his responsibilities.
