A loan of $300 helped to buy basic products of daily use.


Raul De Jesús's story

Raúl is 45 years old and he has a disability. He was in a motorcycle accident and lost the ability to move his right hand. Due to this situation, he could not continue working at the business where he worked as a machine operator. He needed to find new horizons and look for a source of work to provide for his family.

With his severance pay, and the support of his wife, Raúl started his own business in which he sells products that people need every day.

He is currently requesting a loan to buy stock, because he wants to start selling new product lines that his clients are requesting.

He hopes that with this investment he will be able to guarantee his wife and two children better living conditions.
