Manuel De Jesús's story

Manuel de Jesús lives in his own house with his two siblings; one of them goes to school. Manuel Jesús has been selling fruit and vegetables for many years. He has very good personal references because, in time, he has known how to gain the confidence of his customers. More people prefer his business each day. He has struggled for a long time in order to get his family ahead. That is to say that he struggles in order to give them a different quality of life. They now have very humble living conditions, and each day their needs are greater. His family is his main source of inspiration, which drives him to continue working hard in order to bring home the daily bread. As a good entrepreneur, he has made the decision to request this loan from INTEGRAL. He will invest in his business in order to stock it and increase his supply. This will allow him to have a better quality of life for himself and for his family. He will use the loan to buy fruit and vegetables wholesale. He hopes and trusts that the results will be satisfactory and that he will be able to fulfill the dream of his life. It should be mentioned that he is very grateful to this institution because in the past they gave him a hand when he needed a loan. He hopes it will be that way on this occasion.
