Grupo Camache Chiquito 2 Group’s story

Pedro, 55, is married and the father of a beautiful family of four children. They live in a community of the Comanche district.

He works from sun up to sun down so his children will want for nothing. He sells firewood from his home and has been in business for ten years. But to earn extra income he also works for the municipality.

In an effort to continue prospering Pedro has decided to apply for a loan to start a new business selling bananas. As is well known this type of crop requires a strong amount of capital so he hopes to obtain the loan in order to open his banana sales business.

His greatest goal is to strengthen his business and improve his family’s living conditions.
