A loan of $1,100 helped to buy shoes.


Amanda De Jesús's story

Amanda, 60, is a very enthusiastic woman who is determined to seek a better future for her three children and grandchildren. For over 20 years she has been selling shoes in the city center out of a small stall that she was able to build with much dedication and hard work.

Her family is her main motivation and she works every day from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

She is requesting a loan to buy a variety of products so she can increase sales for Mother's Day. She hopes the quality of life in her household will improve so she can give her grandchildren a good education.
