A loan of $475 helped to buy basic household products.


Jaime De Jesús's story

Little working capital, business premises located in his parents' home and a desire to get ahead and offer his neighbors a quiet place where they could enjoy a soft drink or a beer were what motivated Jaime to give birth to his own business, a delicatessen which, thanks to his commitment, has gradually grown.

In the future, Jaime hopes to expand his business and position it even better in the sector. This 55 year-old entrepreneur, who is from Medellín in Colombia, currently needs a loan to buy basic household products so that he can sell other types of product.
