A loan of $800 helped to buy rice, sugar, and drinks.

Simon's story

Simon is 62 years old and runs a small grocery store in the front part of his house. He lives in a semi-urban zone called Paraíso, which is characterized by its dirt roads and deteriorating ecosystem.

In order to support his wife and four children, he decided to invest his savings in groceries to sell. Since that time, he has worked from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. every day, selling rice, sugar, drinks, candies, etc. He has been able to capitalize on business with the help of Fundación D-MIRO Mision Alianza.

With this loan, he wants to buy rice, oil, and sugar for his grocery store. In the future, he wants to have the best-stocked store, and in this way, to be able to support himself and his wife in their old age.
