A loan of $1,275 helped to buy an awning and merchandise.


Rigoberto De Jesús's story

Rigoberto is 58 years old. He started his business 20 years ago due to his precarious financial situation and the need to care for the well being of his three children and his wife. He works selling candies, cigarettes, and coffee as a street vendor. This man has been able to get his family ahead.

He works every day from 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Right now he has difficulties with weather conditions, since the rains that are coming down these days in the region stop him from selling his products. That is why he is motivated to ask for a loan to buy an awning and some merchandise in order to continue doing his work. He dreams of having a locale to increase the variety of products and the sales, thus improving his family's quality of life.
