Haydee De Jesus's story

Haydee, age 47, lives in her own house with her husband and her daughter. She has a small store where she sells soft drinks, cookies, candy, and a series of other products. Her business is located in the park that is close to her house. Through this business she has gotten her family ahead.

She is looking to improve her quality of life. That is why she is requesting a loan to increase the variety of items at her store. She will buy things like soft drinks, candy, and water, etc. This will allow her to increase the profits from her business and improve her family’s living conditions.
