After emigrating to Ireland from Lithuania with his wife and two children, Arunas Adomitas recognized the growing demand for eastern European goods and created a specialist food store called Lituanica. This ethnic food store exemplifies Ballymun’s regeneration and is a great example of First Step Microfinance enabling a small business to support a local community. It will help eastern European families ease into Irish society by providing some of the comforts from their home country.
