A loan of $700 helped to buy basic food items in order to have a greater variety.


Jesus's story

Jesus is married with two children; they are his motivation to work every day. Jesus used to sell fruits and vegetables with a trolley which he would steer through the streets of his municipality. However, he and his wife decided to open a general store two years ago. There, they sell all sorts of basic household food items. The main reason for the business change was Jesus' deteriorating health from selling on the street. Because they only had a small amount of capital to launch the business, it is not very well-stocked. For this reason, Jesus is hoping that a loan will provide him with the opportunity to buy more household food items so that he can offer a wider variety of products. This way, his business will have a greater variety of household food products and therefore be more attractive to customers. Furthermore, with the accompanying increase in income Jesus will be able to offer his wife and two children a better quality of life and better economic opportunities.
