Arnulfo De Jesus's story

Arnulfo previously worked selling coffee which he gathered from harvests that he purchased, but this work was not very stable and he was not able to offer his family a good quality of life with this. One day he met a man in his town who proposed to work at his side delivering food, and since then Arnulfo has carried out this work delivering food. With some small savings that he had, he purchased a vehicle to make the delivery more effective and this has allowed him to deliver food to other towns. However, now the problem with this is the lack of capital in the business, as he has a grand market to attend to but he does not have the necessary investment in food to be able to satisfy them. To improve this situation, Arnulfo requires a loan to purchase food and therefore to be able to satisfy the demands of all his customers.

His dream is to be able to grow this business, to improve it, to be able to obtain better profits, and to make it so that his family has the opportunity to have a better quality of life and better economic opportunities.
