A loan of $1,050 helped buy a variety of fruits.


Osvaldo De Jesús's story

Mr. Osvaldo is 46 years old and is a father to three children of 10, 7 and 6 years of age. Mr. Osvaldo has dedicated his whole life to selling fruits and vegetables as a street vendor without a specific space. Six years ago he was able to get a permit that allowed him to have a permanent place to sell his merchandize. Mr. Osvaldo works only from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. He wants to buy a variety of fruits like apples, pears and grapes to increase his income and improve the quality of life of his family. In the future, Mr. Osvaldo wishes to have another business that will allow him to create jobs for his family.
