A loan of $575 helped to buy baskets, to make some structural improvements.

Dairo De Jesús's story

59-year-old Dairo is noted for having successfully overcome any adverse situations he has faced in life. After finding himself unemployed, with two children to support, he decided to look for a source of work which would allow him to make progress in life and make the income he needed to support his household. He installed some shelving units in a space in his home and set up his own neighborhood fruit and veg store. This business has allowed him to provide his children with an education and his family with a better quality of life. Dairo's biggest challenge is expanding his product offerings. He believes this to be the only way to increase his profits. For this reason, he is requesting a loan to buy baskets, to make some structural improvements and to buy more products to sell. His biggest dream is to have his family enjoy greater financial security.
