A loan of $1,500 helped to buy flour.

Andrés De Jesús's story

Andrés de Jesús is an impressive man in that at the age of 37 he has a bakery where he employs five people making French bread to sell. He lives in a rented house with his life companion, 30, and their two children who are 7 and 2 years old.

He’s been in this occupation for a long time so he already has regular customers that prefer him more each day. His wife does the household chores and he’s the only one who has an income-producing job. All of this makes him feel even more committed to his business since he has no other source of income. It’s very important for him to keep the business active and to continue to retain the customers he already has as well as to attract new ones to improve his income. The business’ location is very strategic since it’s located on one of the main streets that many people have access to.

He’s decided to ask INTEGRAL for this loan to buy raw materials (flour) for making bread and to make up the difference in the money he has to buy a car that will serve to cover his delivery route when he delivers and sells bread in various zones. He trusts in God that he will get the results he hopes for.
