A loan of $1,600 helped to buy a cooler for his fruit, sweet sauces, and ice cream.

Javier De Jesús's story

Javier is a humble and hardworking man. He has supported his family with the fruits of his hard labor in several different endeavors.

Some years ago, he won a bid to start selling fruit in a small shop located within an educational institution. He learned through experience and gradually gained knowledge about running a business from this trade. He has managed to generate enough resources to pay household expenses and meet the basic needs of his wife and daughter.

With the support of a loan, Javier wants to buy a cooler stocked with fruits, sweet sauces, ice cream, and more in bulk. This will allow him to improve his fruit business and may improve sales and his revenues he receives through his work.

Javier says that his purpose is, and always will be, to look after the welfare of his family. He wants to keep working hard and in the medium-term future, he wants to expand his business to be more profitable and allow a better quality of life for his family.
