Nicolas De Jesus's story

Nicolas is married, and he and his wife have a food business, which provides the income they need at home in order to offer their children a good quality of life. They started their business selling food a long time ago, and thanks to the good quality of their products they have managed to make very good sales and gradually expand the business. This has allowed them to have a better quality of life at home and greater financial stability.

Nicolas has always wanted to have his own food stall, but since he didn't have enough capital to own a place for his business, they have always sold their food door to door. That is why now that they have the opportunity to set up a location, he is requesting a loan that will allow them to buy chairs, tables, and kitchen supplies, such as plates and silverware, so that they can set up their food stall.

This will allow him to achieve his dream and sales will also improve, because the business will have a fixed location and become more visible to his customers. His greatest hope is that his business will offer him good stability, which in turn will provide a good quality of life at home and opportunities for financial advancement.
