Jesus Giovani's story

Jesús is a 35-year-old man from the country. He is described as affable, responsible and hardworking. He is in a common law marriage in a community 10 minutes from the city. Jesús works making bricks to build homes, obtaining income by selling them. This has allowed him to change his lifestyle little by little, because with the earnings he's obtained he's been able to pay for the expenses of his humble home. He's also been able to invest more in his business, generating more production. Jesús' dream is to have a bigger and well known brick factory. To do this, he needs some help. With this, he intends to buy more raw materials like diesel, wire, helmets and work tools. This way, he will be closer to his dream of providing his child with the education he didn't have due to a lack of resources in his humble home.
