A loan of $200 helped to buy hog plums and other fruits to sell.


Vilma De Jesus's story

Vilma is 37 years old and has been selling “jocotes” (also known as hog plums) for several years. Through her sales, she has been able to help her children get ahead. Vilma lives in her own house with her husband and three children.


She is requesting a loan in order to buy more hog plums and other fruits so that she can continue her sales and have more income for her family. Vilma wants to continue providing them what they need so that they are without limitations.
