Moris Alexander's story

Moris Alexander M. H. is 21 years old. He lives in Zacatecoluca, La Paz. He lives with his life partner and their five-year old child. Moris has a fruit and vegetable stand in the Zacatecoluca market. His life partner works alongside him. Both, though very young, have worked hard to get ahead with their family and to pay for the studies of their young daughter. Moris wants to improve his family’s finances, and thus would like to stock his business by purchasing larger quantities of fruits and vegetables, which he would pay for in cash. Thus, it’s necessary to have the money when he buys them. Moris dreams of expanding his business, so that he can bring a better quality of life to his child.
