A loan of $1,075 helped to buy stock merchandise at wholesale.


Bertulfo De Jesús's story

Bertulfo, 62, lives with his wife and is father of three children. He’s had his own business for nine years selling fried food, roasted chicken, ice-cream and soft-drinks, among others, but due to circumstances beyond his control he had to move to live in a rented house in a new neighborhood two months ago. He reestablished his business there once again but because of this his capital decreased because the move took a few days which led to a drop in inventory and supplies. However, he’s continued working with the few ingredients he has left. His drive, perseverance and wish to make progress have pushed him to request support from the loan that he wants to use to buy stock merchandise at wholesale (soft-drinks, beer, ice-cream, chicken, snacks, etc.) to be able to increase working capital and continue to strive so his business can remain in operation and allow him to continue watching over his family’s well-being. He also wants to save so that he can get a house of his own in future where he can enjoy a more tranquil old-age and better quality of life in the company of his wife and children.
