A loan of $1,100 helps to stock his store with grocery products.


Aristides's story

Aristides, 64, is divorced, and his children are already grown. They live in Pajan, a place where people work the fields and sell their products. The Covid-19 health crisis has affected people here.

Aristides is a very hardworking person who, in spite the difficult circumstances that we are going through with this pandemic, is continuing to press ahead with his business. He has a grocery store in his house where he sells consumer staples. At first, he had to close the business. Later, he started to sell again, but he is not selling very much. He earns his living through this business.

Aristides will use this loan to stock his store with products including: rice, sugar, milk, etc. His store is very low on stock, and so he hopes that you can help him buy more products with this loan.
