A loan of $725 helped to buy stock merchandise and to do some remodeling in his store.

Noe De Jesus's story

Noe started his project of setting up his own store three months ago after having worked in Panama for a time for an electric power company installing public electrical wiring. However, at the age of 61 he feels that this type of activity is a bit risky for him and in addition it worsens the pain he has in one of his joints. Because of this, he decided to follow his dream of having a store of his own where he grew up so that he can be in permanent contact with people from his neighborhood.

Now, Noe is at the public’s service every day and always strives to provide them with better service every time. Because of this, he’s looking for a loan that will allow him to do some remodeling in his store to make it more attractive and pleasant to his customers and to buy stock merchandise to meet customer needs that he hasn’t been able to for lack of stock.

Noe hopes that with this his business will increase in sales and he will be able to continue to earn income for his home where he lives with his five children since the mother of his children abandoned him some time ago. In addition, he dreams with the business providing employment opportunities for other people who very much need a salary to cover their expenses.
