A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase rice, tuna, and oil.

Jesus Pablo's story

Jesús is 34 years old and lives in Primavera de Duran, an outlying urban area that originally had irregular terrain with hills, creeks, and lagoons. There are remnants of a deteriorating environment. His wife manages a store. They have two children who attend public schools.

Some time ago, his wife wanted to open a grocery store. She is in charge of opening the store every day. Jesús works as a bricklayer and helps out with the store when no construction jobs are available. His daughter also helps his wife with managing the business. The family sells products such as sugar, rice, oil, and all types of groceries. With the help of this loan, Jesús will buy more merchandise such as rice by the “quintal” (1 quintal = 46 kg), tuna, and oil to restock the business. In the future, he hopes to finish the construction of his home so that his family will have a better life.
