A loan of $400 helped to buy a heated serving table to keep her food hot.


Guadalupe De Jesus's story

Guadalupe lives with her family, her daughter and her husband. Guadalupe works selling food. She works ever day of the week providing meals to her neighbors and people from nearby locations. She has experience in this business, and works to obtain income to help cover her household expenses. She will be buying a heated serving table, so she is requesting a loan to cover the cost. She will make her repayments from the earnings that she will generate with her sales, and this investment is highly necessary to improve the way her diner looks, improving her image with her customers. Guadalupe's aspiration is that through loans, she will be able to grow her business and purchase her own home.
