A loan of $1,000 helped to buy bleach and soap.

Jesus Consuelo's story

Jesús, age 49, is a hard-working woman who has earned a living selling bleach and disinfectant so she could pay for her family's household expenses.

She works every day, sometimes with the help of her son. Her husband is a bricklayer and they have three adult children who all work and help with home expenses. The loan will be used to buy bleach and soap to increase productivity.

In the future she would like give her business a more formal structure and attract more customers.
