Noe De Jesus's story

Noe has always been a very hardworking person, and thanks to that he has been able to get himself, his wife and his 10 children ahead. However, some time ago he became unemployed and because he needed an income to support his household expenses, he decided to set up his own business in his house. With a lot of hard work, he started a business making fruit pulp, which he sells among his neighbors and acquaintances. In addition, he sells wafers at the front door of his house, which increases his profits so that he can continue to provide an education for his children. Thanks to the high quality of his products and the charisma he's always been known for, he succeeded in getting a large number of customers for his business. Now he has an opportunity to keep on diversifying his income sources, and he seeks a loan in order to purchase a food cart to sell fried foods outside his home. That way he'll increase his profits so he can continue to provide a college education for his children. By doing that, he'll overcome financial difficulties in his business and get ahead along with his family. Besides, he'll be able to improve his living conditions and his opportunities to make economic progress.
