William De Jesús's story

William is 52 years old and lives with his mother and two children, ages 16 and 17. Since he was a youth, he has run the business that he inherited from his father, which has become the main income for the household. He wants to be able to offer his children a university education, but he is conscious of the fact that his business does not currently provide enough of an income to offer his children the ability to begin taking classes. Because of this, William is looking for a loan to buy merchandise and generate a higher income with which he hopes to make his children's dreams a reality.
