A loan of $450 helped to buy beef.

Alcides Teodoro's story

Alcides is 57 years old. He is divorced and has one daughter whom he continues to support as she is still in school.

Twenty years ago, Alcides began to work alongside his mother, who worked selling meat. He tells us that his mother was his motivation for learning the business. He also tells us that he rents out a part of his home, for which he receives monthly income.

With his hard work and effort, Alcides has completed building his home and also has been able to support his daughter, as she has been his motivation to continue striving in life.

With the loan that he is requesting, he will invest in his butcher's shop by buying beef.

Alcides' wish is to buy himself a vehicle for transporting his meat, as this would be cheaper.

Alcides is grateful for the trust being placed in him, and agrees to continue working well with the Prosperity Program.
