Arnoldo De Jesus's story

Arnoldo is 62 years old. He is a hardworking, entrepreneurial person that is dedicated to his family. His greatest desire has always been to become independent, and he has achieved it through effort and discipline. He now works in his cafeteria-style shop in Turbo selling prepared foods.

He hopes to make his store known throughout the town and establish it as one of the best. In order to achieve his dreams, Arnoldo is requesting a loan to purchase wholesale cheese. This way, he can strengthen his business in the best way possible.
