A loan of $800 helped to purchase fruits.

Gabriel De Jesús's story

The violence that was occurring in Urrao Antioquia, his municipality of origin, Gabriel de Jesus U. Z. and his wife saw no other option than to move to the city of Medellin, in search of better opportunities.

With his hands and with the small savings he had were the only tools he had to start his own business. He is a fighter that never tires and he started out selling fruits and fish along various streets in the city. His hope was to pull through and to improve their quality of life.

Four years ago Gabriel managed to have a fixed location from where to sell fruits and it is located in the downtown area of the city. He works from 7am to 7pm to earn a daily living.

The dream of this enterprising man is to make his business grow and to offer a larger variety of fruits to his clients. He requires a loan to cancel some loans he incurred in the purchase of fruits in the past and to purchase more products to increase his sales.
