A loan helped to buy and sell staple goods.

Azarias's story

Azarias is single and 55 years old. He is the father of eight children, three of whom are grown and on their own, and five of whom are of school age. Some of them are in high school, and others in elementary school.

He is a merchant, which is how he takes care of his family and the day to day essentials. With the money from the loan he intends to buy products for resale such as sugar, cookies, salt, popcorn, mint, and broth. He is a successive borrower, and he used the previous loans for the same thing.

His dream is to expand his business and buy a car to help him buy products for his business.

Translated from Portuguese by Kiva volunteer Kristin Fisher.
