A loan of $2,600 helped to stock his store.


Orlando De Jesús's story

Orlando is 36 years old and owns a miscellaneous items store, where he sells a variety of items such as shoes, toiletries, paper goods, toys, and other things. He got the idea for this business from the need to generate an income to pay the household expenses. He is part of a group of persons who had to resettle because of the violence that had developed in his home village. He arrived in the city with his family, in search of new opportunities to start over. He is asking for a loan so he can buy inventory in quantity (toys, home accessories, toiletries, and other things) and make some improvements to his store (fix the façade) so that it presents a better image and so that it will be attractive to passersby. He will also be able to stock his store with items that will satisfy the needs and wants of people who visit and increase his sales. This will allow him to have better financial solvency and living conditions at home.
