Alicia De Jesus's story

Alicia is a person who, despite having passed through many adversities in her life, has got through thanks to her desire to get ahead together with her family. Alicia is a single mother with three children, due to the fact that the father of her children died a while ago. Due to this, Alicia had to started providing for the maintenance of her children and the bills, for which she was forced to get a job which would at the same time allow her to care for her children. This was hos she set up her catalogue sales business, where she offers her customers personal products, household products, as well as other things. Thanks to this Alicia has been able to make a good number of customers who guarantee good sales. Thanks to the fact that she has large orders for household products Alicia hopes that a loan will give her the possibility to buy household products in order to meet her customers orders.

Alicia hopes to continue with her sales, so she can have a guaranteed income in her house. Alicia dreams of being able to get her family ahead and being able to have economic stability which will in turn give her a better chance to progress. Alicia wants to in the future be able to set up a warehouse and be based in a store where she can be recognised by more people in her area and generate jobs for people in need.
