A loan of $575 helped to buy fruits and vegetables for his store.


Albeiro De Jesús's story

Albeiro is 48 years old. He is a man who has gone through innumerable experiences which have taught him to be stronger and to always set his sights on greater goals. Five years ago he had problems with alcoholism - a situation that left him almost broke and close to losing his family. Aware of his problem, he decided to seek professional help and rebuild his home. Thanks to the support of his family, Albeiro is a new man full of hopes and a drive to work hard to offer his wife and son a better quality of life. For this reason, he set up a fruit and vegetable store in the Amagá municipality, where he works every day from 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. His greatest dream is to be able to buy stock for his business, so that he can meet the needs of his customers, and this is why he is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of fruits and vegetables. This will enable him to increase his sales and generate more income for his household.
