Javier De Jesus
Javier De Jesús is 56 years old. His activity is selling natural remedies and plaster statues of saints. He’s been in business for over 11 years. The desire to get ahead in this business has made him into a very responsible man. Javier has to rise very early every day to start his work day at 6am and go until 7pm when he returns home. Sometimes he boards buses to offer his remedies. This is what’s pushing him to request a loan to buy pills, vitamins, injections, syrup, pomades and creams, among others.
