A loan of $425 helped to purchase cheese, chicken, and sodas for his sandwich business.

Omar Alexander's story

Omar is a hardworking entrepreneur. He's 35 years old and studied only to the 4th grade level because of the scarcity of economic resources in his life. He decided to start his own business because he wanted to get ahead by working hard. He has been very dedicated to selling chicken sandwiches. He gets up very early to sell from 9 am to 4 pm. He is applying for this loan to buy cheese because it gives him a good profit. He has also decided to invest in more chicken and sodas for his business. He has been working tirelessly for a better life and meeting basic daily needs. He still has no children but supports his 18 year old brother who is in school. He wants his brother to have advantages and get a decent job that will allow them to progress together. He dreams to have his house remodeled to contain a store so he can sell in his own home and not go out in order to sell.
