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.
Jesús de 40 años de edad, es una persona muy alegre quien a pesar de realizar un trabajo muy duro, es feliz ya que de este modo sostiene a su familia, la cual está conformada por su esposa y una pequeña hija de 8 años de edad. Jesús trabaja comercializando cocos, los cuales parte y saca el agua para colocarla en una bolsa y así vendérsela a sus clientes, el agua de coco es un negocio bastante estable, sobretodo porque él se encuentra en calle principal donde muchas personas transitan y lo visualizan. Jesús solicita un préstamo a INTEGRAL, con el cual pueda contar con el dinero necesario para comprar mayor cantidad de cocos, así también bolsitas plásticas para colocar el agua de los cocos, pajillas y cucharas, con lo que pueda tener su negocio muy bien equipado.
