Gerardo De Jesús's story

Gerardo de Jesús, 32, lives with his wife, who attends to the household chores and helps him in his business. He has a stall that sells pupusas, tortillas, sodas, bread, cookies, candy and other types of food. The business is located in a very strategic spot, since in the area there are public schools and various businesses. His sales are very good since there is a lot of foot traffic. It is for this reason that he wishes to invest in the business, buying a greater variety of products such as bread, juice, ingredients for making pupusas and other items. This will lead to an increase in sales. This is important for Gerardo since it will allow him to provide a better life for his wife and children, who are the main reason for all his efforts.
