Josué Nehemías's story

Josué Nehemías is 25 years old and lives in his own house, together with his beloved family, comprised of his 40 year-old mother and 7 year-old son. Josué is a hard-working man, entrepreneurial, and above all, friendly. Thanks to these great characteristics and his strong desire to overcome, he has succeeded in gaining the confidence of many people who admire him as a man of integrity. He sells artisanal sorbets in an ambulatory manner, in all of the main zones of the area where he lives. Many people prefer his business because when it comes to sorbets, he is the one known to offer delicious artisanal sorbets for every taste and preference. He has flavors like melon, myrtle, coconut and tamarind, all covered with a pineapple jelly. Best of all, he offers the best prices. Josúe's dream is to give his son an education so that, one day, he can have the pleasure of seeing him grow into a great professional. This is the reason why Josúe performs his work each day with pride and dedication. It also motivated him to request this loan from INTEGRAL, in order to invest in his business by purchasing the necessary ingredients for making artisanal sorbets. He will also invest in the repair and equipment of the bicycle he uses to distribute his sorbets. In this way, the loan will help him to achieve his dream and to give his family economic stability.
