A loan of $1,050 helped to buy staple products.

Jesus's story

Jesús, 59, set up his own business selling staple products to generate income to support and educate his two children. With more than 20 years of experience in the field, Jesús is well known in his neighborhood as a friendly and charitable man who has managed to get ahead with discipline and effort. Thanks to his business he has been able to give his two children access to an education and a favorable quality of life.

Today he has a dream--to expand is business so he can earn a better income, which will lead to his family's well-being. This is why he's requesting a loan to buy merchandise.
