Aly Fernando
View original language description ↓
My name is Aly M. and I have a business selling everyday household items and groceries, as well as clothing. My wife helps run the business in the mornings while I sell clothing in the neighborhood. In the afternoons I return home to run our shop, which is located in our home. We do this so we can take care of our 3 children, all of whom attend school.

Our business has grown a lot, and we've added fruits and vegetables to our stock, as they are in great demand. We've run our business well and we have good customers who like the quality and the fair prices we offer to the community. We are requesting a loan to help us grow our business and continue to improve our family's quality of life. Thank you.
