A loan helped to buy more vegetables to sell.


David Ricardo's story

David studied up to ninth grade in school, is married and has a four-year-old son. His wife is a trader.

David has been selling vegetables for 5 years and learned this from his mother. He travels for 40 minutes by bus from his house to the market where he sells them, working from 5:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. He will use this loan to buy more vegetables to sell.

His dream is to improve his home and support his family.
