A loan of $1,100 helped to buy ice cream products in order to supply his business with products he has run out of.


Jose Gilberto's story

Jose is married and has a three year old child. Because he had a job where the money he earned was not sufficient to meet his household expenses he decided to quit it and two weeks ago he began his own ice cream shop which he opened with very little capital but thanks to his daily effort he has managed to make it prosper. Thanks to his good service and the good quality of the products he offers, Jose has been having good sales, but he does not have enough capital behind him and this is why he is searching for a loan in order to buy ice cream products to supply his business with the products he has already run out of.

Jose hopes to be able to continue moving forward and to offer his family a good quality of life and his child access to a good education. His dream is to own his own home and to offer his family a more stable home.
