A loan of $550 helped to repair the cart where he prepares fried snacks, since he needs to repair its tires, the awning, and other parts.


Jose Jesus's story

Jose began selling fried snacks because he was unemployed and found this opportunity to generate the income that he needed in his household, where he lives with his two children. In spite of the fact that he began his business with very little capital, his effort has permitted him to advance and succeed in offering his children a good quality of life. Jose needs to make some repairs to his cart where he prepares fried snacks, and he had some savings destined for this, but because the winter caused some damage to his home, he had to use the money to repair the damage that the winter caused in his home, and now he has no money to be able to repair his cart. It is because of this that Jose is seeking a loan to repair his cart where he prepares the fried snacks, since he needs to repair its tires, the awning, and other additional parts.

His dream is to be able to move this business forward and that it will allow him to offer his two children a better quality of life and better opportunities to advance. In addition, he hopes that his business will generate better income for him and that he can repair his house to prevent the winter from again causing damage.
