A loan of $1,075 helped to buy shelving.

Sergio De Jesús's story

Sergio, age 41, is one of the victims of armed conflict in his country. Upon being displaced by groups on the margin of the law, he had to abandon his home and carry the weight of a war in which he was innocent.

After years of suffering and desolation, he managed to return to his home to begin again rebuilding his future. That was how he established an agricultural store in the San Carlos municipality in Colombia. He now runs the store, and it generates income for him to support his family.

He is now requesting a loan to buy shelving to remodel his place and offer a better quality of service. He dreams of having financial security and assuring his family of better living conditions.
