A loan of $300 helped to buy coconuts to sell.

Jesus Salvador's story

Forty-year-old Jesús is a very upbeat person who, though he does hard work, is happy because it allows him to support his family. His family is made up of his wife and his young, eight-year-old daughter. Jesús sells coconuts, splitting them to extract the water, which he puts in bags to sell to his customers. Coconut water is a pretty stable business, mostly because he is located on a main street where many people pass by and see him. Jesús is asking INTEGRAL for a loan so he can have the money he needs to buy a greater quantity of coconuts, as well as plastic bags for the coconut water, straws, and spoons. This will allow him to have his business well stocked.
