A loan of $500 helped record an album with his mariachi band.

Ariel De Jesus's story

Ariel is 36 years old, and he and his wife have three children in their care. He is originally from Jinotega. He is passionate about music and is the front man for a mariachi band. He's a hard-working man who began his career with very few resources ten years ago, with eight members and no money to make recordings. His colleagues and his wife support him in his difficult life as a musician. His dream is to travel to the United States and lend his services as a musician. He decided to ask for this loan which he will use to invest in paying for a recording session and recording an album, which he believes will help improve his income.
