Aniceto's story

Aniceto is a modest and hardworking man with a great understanding of business. He resides in a very simple house with his family. He is married and a father of six children.

Aniceto has a general store which is located by his house and which is a very good place for this type of business where many people come to buy goods every day. He has been involved in business activities since 2014 and feels so comfortable running his small store because he can earn money every day.

A 1,000 USD loan is offered to Aniceto to help improve his business activity. He will use this loan to buy additional supplies such as milk, eggs, sugar, rice, coffee, biscuits, salt and candles. He hopes to run a bigger business in the future.
