A loan of $1,200 helped expand the business and buy merchandise.


Guadalupe De Jesús's story

I have run a grocery store for 3 years now. My wife and I are in charge of it and it makes us very happy because it is the source of income for my family. It is what has allowed us to raise our 2 chldren and give them everything basic that they need. It has also allowed us to pay for our home and carry on with the business. Therefore, I am asking for a $1,200.00 loan so that we can expand the business and have more merchandise to sell.
