A loan of $375 helped to buy yucca and other ingredients to sell food in his food stall.


Arquimedes's story

Arquimedes is 50 years old, married, and lives in his own home with his wife. Arquimedes has a space in a wholesale market in the city. There, he waits patiently for his customers to come looking for products. He has worked in this business for 10 years and he does so along with his wife, who also prepares food to sell. This activity has provided them a good income up until now and with that income he can buy necessary products and pay for some home necessities. He hopes to continue working to make his business grow even more, and in the future open a food products store in his house.

With the amount of 1000 Nuevos Soles, he will buy sacks of yucca, and furthermore will buy ingredients and supplies to continue selling food in his market stall.
