A loan of $575 helped to buy scrap metal in his municipality and to be able to make a profit when he sells it in the city.


Jesus Angel's story

Jesus has made a living in scrap metal for various years, collecting it in his municipality and then taking it to the city where he receives a good price for it. In this way he generates the necessary income for his household to satisfy the needs of his wife and their children. A few days ago he had to overcome a great family difficulty which was that his wife was very sick and had to undergo surgery, which meant high bills for the family and has caused Jesus to be left without capital for his business. In order to start up again with this activity and gain capital to continue working Jesus is looking for a loan to buy scrap metal in his municipality and to be able to make a profit when he sells it in the city.

His dream is to be able to overcome the economic difficulties he is facing and offer his family a better quality of life.
