A loan of $1,200 helped increase his capital to buy natural products to sell.

Ariel's story

Ariel sells natural products, as does his mother and father. Ariel's family lives in the zone surrounding the city [of Santa Cruz], in Villa Fortaleza. He is single and has been involved in this economic activity for some 3 years. He says this is a source of income for his sustenance and for helping his father and mother and his brothers.

Ariel indicates that the money we loan him will be used to buy more merchandise because demand exists in the city of Santa Cruz for these products.

When Ariel is not engaged in sales, he works in construction. He is a bricklayer's helper and earns extra money for this activity. He is a young person who desires to get ahead. In the future he would like to study for a technical career – this is his desire.
