A loan of $1,050 helped to buy stock wholesale.


Jaime De Jesús's story

Jaime, 68, is married and the father of a child whom he has gotten ahead with great effort.

He has more than 40 years of work experience in commerce. For 10 years he has made a living with his own business, a deli where he sells soda, pastry, sweets, beer, liquor, and fried food that his wife makes. He also rents a pool table for his customer's enjoyment. This has earned him enough income to pay for his household necessities as well as his son's education.

Jaime wants to invest his loan in buying stock wholesale (pastry, beer, liquor, soda, and other things). This will given him enough resources to respond to customer demand and improve his sales and income.

Jaime's goal is to keep on working to strengthen his business as long as God and his body allow. He wants to leave his business to his son to ensure him favorable economic stability so he'll enjoy better living conditions and greater well-being.
