A loan of $1,725 helped to buy a fridge and a stainless steel table to set up a meat shop in his brother-in-law's legume shop.

Elver De Jesus's story

Elver has had to pass through many adversities in his life. However, he has always had his wife's support to help him get past life's difficulties. Currently, Elver is unemployed due to unforeseen circumstances that forced him leave the company where he was working. Even so, his salary was insufficient to cover the household expenses.

Elver has an opportunity through his brother in law's legumes shop, which is in a very good location where many clients do their shopping. Elver wants to set up a butcher shop and have a stable source of income to improve the quality of life in his home. With the objective of setting up his shop, Elver will use the loan to buy a fridge and a stainless steel table to have enough to set up a meat shop in his brother's legume shop.

In this way, Elver will be able to take advantage of his brother-in-law's market location to increase his household income, thus improving their quality of life. Elver dreams of having a big business, generating jobs and getting his family ahead in spite of the difficulties presented to him.
