A loan of $500 helped to buy lottery tickets and sell them.

Santiago De Jesus's story

Santiago, 56, is an enterprising man that sells lottery tickets in the streets. He sells in strategic places where people know him. A lot of them are frequent customers.

He lives together with his wife and three underage grandchildren that go to school. Nine years ago, Santiago started with this line of work, which has helped him to make a living.

He is now requesting a loan from INTEGRAL, so that he can buy a larger quantity of lottery tickets. He will then be able to sell more. In addition, sometimes some of his clients want to buy more than one ticket, so he has to make the most out of this situation.
