A loan of $550 helped to purchase tools for working and general restocking.


Wilson De Jesús's story

Wilson, who is 44 years old, learned the trade of hairdressing after looking for work and not finding it. Tired and needing to improve his economic condition, he dedicated himself to this job, which has been his only way of earning his daily bread. Wilson has one great need: to purchase some work tools that the city’s Secretary of Health has required. If he doesn’t obtain them, he will be obligated to close the business, as they are a requirement for it. Wilson is afraid of losing his only source of employment, and because of this, he has resorted to requesting a loan in order to purchase the work tools and in doing so, to invest in supplies.
