Help Pepsi with a Startup Capital

39650258_1561234447742173_r.jpegClyde Richmond aka Pepsi is 52 years old and grew up in the countryside of Guyana, South America. From a young age he loved fishing and farming, after finishing High School he became a Farmer working towards achieving a better life for himself and family.
Unfortunately life took an unexpected turn for the worst in the year 2000, due to an accident that left him handicap. After many surgeries to repair both of his legs that were broken in several places and countless therapies, Pepsi has one hand and unable to use his legs without the support of a clutch. His mother passed away one year after the accident and his father soon after.  Due to his condition that required constant attention all his relatives disowned him. Unable to work and no one to support him, Pepsi became homeless and with no other choice  start begging on the streets to sustain himself. Twelve years ago he met a couple he call his Guardian Angels (Indra & Navin).
After learning about his story they took him in their home and treated him like their own family. His life became a little stable from then and he was determined to help himself as much as he could.  He was able to purchase a house lot (land) with the money he accumulated on the streets from generous donors. The couple took him to Habitat for Guyana (Charitable Organization)
to get a house built for him.  Pepsi was approved and became a proud Homeowner in 2014. 
The years of standing longs hours seeking assistance on the streets has taken a toll on Pepsi's health.  Medical Treatment and Checkups  which are very costly for him have to be done  monthly.
Pepsi is well known to our families for many years and during a recent visit to Guyana in April 2019 it was heartbreaking and sad to see him struggling seeking assistance day after day regardless if it rains or shine. He complained that vagrants would rob him many times due to his circumstances.
Pepsi was very excited when we told him about our intention to fund-raise to get a Startup Capital for a small business he can operate from the comfort of his own home.
Together we can make it happen for him, please support this campaign in any way possible and share on Social Media.
Lets help Pepsi. Thank You for you kindness in advance.
