Bustember Alexander's story

Bustember Alexander is 48 years old. He is in a common-law relationship and has three grown-up children. His partner is a homemaker. They live in the city of Portoviejo, the City of the Royal Tamarinds. It is a place of people who in the majority earn their livings in commerce. It has been hard hit by COVID-19.

He is a very hard-working man who does everything he can to get ahead with his family. In spite of how difficult it is now because of the pandemic he continues on. He earns his living selling medicine. During the quarantine he had to close his business and that caused a lot of loss. But thanks to the loans he restocked his business and now is selling like before but taking great precautions.

This loan will be used to buy more variety of medicines.
