Tito De Jesús
Tito de Jesús is 69 years of age. A few years ago his wife passed away, and his children are grown up and have their own homes. This is why he lives alone in the house he owns. He worked hard to ensure his family got ahead, as he was always the main breadwinner. Now that he is alone he continues to work as he is enterprising, charismatic and dedicated to his job.

Nine years ago he set up a small store in a room in his house, where he sells a wide range of basic necessities. His business is what allows him to earn a living and keep busy, as he is elderly and cannot look for a job outside of his home. He wants to move forward and continue earning a living, and has therefore decided to request this loan from INTEGRAL to invest in his store by buying goods (rice, beans, oil, coffee, milk, pasta, detergents, etc.) for the store. It is important that his store remains in operation, as this gives him emotional stability and allows him to provide for his household.

Tito de Jesús tiene 69 años de edad, hace algunos años falleció su esposa y sus hijos son mayores de edad y ya hicieron sus hogares. Esta es la razón por la cual habita solo en casa de su propiedad. Trabajó muy duro para sacar adelante a su familia dado que él siempre fue el principal soporte económico de la familia. Ahora que vive solo continúa trabajando ya que él es un hombre emprendedor, carismático y dedicado a sus labores. Desde hace 9 años estableció una pequeña tienda en su hogar de habitación en la cual comercializa variedad de productos de primera necesidad. Su negocio es lo que le permite ganarse la vida y mantenerse ocupado ya que por su avanzada edad no puede buscar un trabajo fuera de su hogar. Con muchas ganas de superarse y continuar ganándose el pan de cada día ha tomado la decisión de solicitar este crédito a INTEGRAL para invertir en su tienda en la compra de mercadería (arroz, frijoles, aceite, café, leche, macarrones, detergentes, etc.) para su tienda la cual es muy importante mantenerla activa ya que esto le da estabilidad emocional y le permite llevar el sustento a su hogar.
