Mary De Jesus's story

Mary is a very hard-working person who always seeks to offer a good quality of life in her home. For that reason, she has held various jobs, the great majority of which were in activities concerning food, such as restaurants and selling fried foods.

After working for many years as an employee, one day Mary made the decision to open her own business. That's how she came to start her own restaurant where she works arduously to overcome her family's difficulties concerning capital. To be able to continue expanding her restaurant, Mary is seeking a loan that would permit her to buy a refrigerator where she could preserve some foods and drinks, and thus offer better products to her customers.

Her dream is to be able to advance this business and offer employment to those who are more in need.
