A loan of $425 helped to buy sodas, snacks, meat and chicken to offer more on sale.

Armando Jose's story

Armando, 45, has worked since he was young in order to get ahead. He studied business management but among those who couldn't find a job. He had to look for an alternative to get by. Together with his wife and a little bit of money they started selling cheese and sodas which went well. With their profits they started to sell in greater quantities every day. From this marriage they had a son who is 8 and in elementary school.

"Today I am a single father because we are separated. My business changed from selling cheese door to door into a small grocery store where I want to increase the products to grow and have more profits." This will be possible through the loan from Afrodenic which will buy sodas, snacks, meat, chicken, two tables and chairs to start selling home cooked meals at night and have another way to help give his young son the very best.
