Aristides's story

Aristides is 26 years old and works at a business that he started 3 years ago in partnership with his wife (see photo). It is a vegetable stand located in a very busy corner in the neighborhood where they live. He works there every day and has obtained good results and it has had a positive acceptance in the area. The idea came about out of needing to make his dream come true of buying his own house. He has fought for that with hard work and a lot of dedication. This business has become the backbone of this couple's dreams. That is why he is motivated and seeking opportunities that will allow it to grow and keep going ahead. He is asking for the support of the loan to invest more in some improvements on the locale that have already been started and to buy stock wholesale (fruit and vegetables). This way, he can give his business a better image that will allow for attracting more customers and a larger variety of food, filling the needs and tastes of his buyers. Aristides, in addition to making his dream come true of having his own house, also wants to expand his business into other neighborhoods, widening his market and his family finances directly. He is aware that to achieve this he must continue working hard with discipline and organization. This is the key to achieving success and being able to enjoy a better quality of life being at his family's side.
