Hernando De Jesús's story

Hernando, 58, is father of two children. Several years ago he stated out with a fast food cart in front of a local school. Hernando has grown in the sector at present thanks to the good service and quality of his products. He works from 6am until 11pm, Monday to Friday and half days on Saturdays. Thanks to this business he was able to build his house and has moved his family forward. Today, he’d like to make some improvements (floor and walls) and to buy ingredients to make his products which is why he’s calling on a loan since he does not have the resources for said investment. He hopes to improve his income and his family’s quality of life. He dreams with having a great restaurant and to generate sources of employment in his community.
