A loan of $475 helped to purchase fish food, and also medicine for the animals.


Arlon Gabriel's story

Since he was a boy, the care of animals and the environment has been Arlon's primary interest. For this reason, he decided to study veterinary medicine, a profession which he carries on with great passion. He is 25 years old, single, and two years ago, he established a veterinary practice. His mother has been his right hand. Apart from taking care of animals with health problems, he sells fish and is focusing on raising exotic fish, an activity that he wants to carry out with success and to be known in different cities. He asks for this loan in order to purchase fish food, and also animal medicines, products which have a high price. Therefore, Arlon puts his confidence in the loan, since he will have the opportunity to offer better service, and in this way be able to have more customers and better income. One of his goals is to improve people's health through swimming as a means of relaxation. He wants to accomplish all of his goals, to be a change agent and a great professional.
