A loan of $575 helped to purchase items to stock his store.

Jairo De Jesus's story

At his 63 years of age, Jairo considers himself a micro-businessman who is a fighter. From the time he was very young he has worked to provide his 2 children with a better life. As his financial situation is not the best, he is a dreamer who lives with the hope of providing his family with a better future.

He started his business 14 months ago by setting up a store in the garage at his home. The business now supports his family. His dream is to improve his economic situation and that the income from his store goes up bit by bit.

Jairo also dreams of seeing his business grow and he knows that he will need to invest more in order to purchase in large quantities to receive a discount on the purchase and greater earnings on the sales. He does not have money to invest at this time, so he is requesting a loan that will help him to not only purchase the items he needs, but to also move step by step towards his goals and dreams.
