A loan of $1,050 helped to purchase boxes of milk, butter, margarine, sugar, canned food etc.

Jean Aime's story

Having completed his university program, the 31-year-old client runs a grocery stand on campus to make ends meet month to month since he only receives his student funding in very small portions at a time.

He sells canned food, sugar, boxes of milk, and other bare essentials so that the students on campus don't have to go far. Having already received several loans from Hope, his revenues have considerably increased, the conditions of his social life have changed, and he has enlarged his stand.

He is currently saving up to open a store. Even if he finds a job someday, he will never be able to abandon his business. He is currently supporting his brothers and sisters who are still in school.
