Jaime De Jesús's story

Jaime is 60 and an experienced merchant. He has worked as a vendor and taxi driver. Thirteen years ago, he decided to use his savings to start his own business selling basic household items so that he could improve his family's living situation. He is deeply grateful that this business has allowed him to provide his two children with a good education. His business is growing because he offers great customer service. He wants to expand his business and offer self-service so that he can stock more products and offer employment to others. Jaime believes now is the time to fulfill his goals and dreams. He is applying for a loan to buy more inventory and supplies for the school season. This will increase his earnings and improve his living situation.
