A loan of $475 helped to buy school supplies and uniforms for his children.

Jesús Alberto's story

Mr. Jesús Alberto and his wife Mrs. Alicia have two school-aged children but, at this moment, they have a problem in that they don’t have the money that is necessary to buy supplies and uniforms for school.
Mr. Jesús works in a water company. He is a water distributor for various neighborhoods in the city of Nuevo Laredo. His wife Mrs. Alicia sells used clothes outside her house during the weekends. These activities contribute to their household income.
When we went to visit their home, only Mrs. Alicia and her two children were home, as Mr. Jesús was working.
Mr. Jesús is requesting a loan for $475.00 to buy school supplies and uniforms since the children are required to go to school for their own security.
