A loan of $2,125 helped to buy an already existing store.

Dany Alexander's story

Alexander, 21, works as an agricultural laborer on a flower farm but in order to earn extra income he wants to start his own business and take advantage of an opportunity of buying a grocery and vegetable store being sold by one of his neighbors that’s presented itself to him. With this he will be able to increase his income level to contribute to the support of his parents’ home.

Alexander is an energetic, active, driven young man who very much wants to make progress. Because of this, he’s motivated to request the loan that will be used to buy the business to start working in his free time. He will also hire a family member to help him out the rest of the time because in the near future he’d like to leave his current job because he says the work days are very demanding and the salary isn’t commensurate with all the effort he puts into it.

Alexander dreams with seeing his business grow becoming very well-known in the sector that will make it possible for him to earn good income to get ahead and to improve his family’s quality of life.
