A loan of $375 helped to finish a room in his home.


J Jesús's story

Jesús is originally from the city of Zacatecas but he has been living in Nuevo Laredo for more than ten years. He is married to Juanita Griselda with whom he has three school-aged children, to whom he wants to give the best. Jesús has worked for the past 6 years selling corn on the cob and ice creams that he makes himself. His wife Juanita Griselda works selling popsicles from home. These are the sources of income that they generate in order to get ahead and to give their children the best.

Jesús is asking for a loan in order to finish a room that he is building in order to make it into a computer rental business, since close to his home there is a school and in that way he could offer the students a service where they could complete their homework.

With the earnings that he will obtain from the sale of corn on the cob and ice cream Jesús will repay his loan and with the income from Juanita Griselda he will pay the family and school expenses.
