Henry Alexander's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy tamarind and carao (natural tree of Central America that is used for the treatment of chest diseases and as a drink with many nutritional properties) to keep the business going.

Henry Alexander's story

Henry is married, his wife's a merchant and he doesn't have children. Henry is engaged in the trade of coconuts, carao, bee’s honey, tamarind and other products. He travels one kilometre from his home to where his sales stall is located and works from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. In addition, he has experience in the work with metal structures.

He'll use the loan to buy tamarind and carao to keep the business going. Henry dreams of improving the facilities of the sale stall and also wants to open a business to make and sell pupusas (handmade thick tortilla made from dough of corn or rice, stuffed with one or more ingredients)
