Alexander De Jesús's story

Alexander, 37 years old, is a vigorous and hardworking man who lives with his wife and their 3 children, who are his principal motivation for constantly struggling in quest of their wellbeing.

At present Alexander is unemployed and, with the determination to generate income to cover household expenses, he decided to open his own business, a mini-market to be located in the barrio where he resides. To do this, Alexander has rented a location but he needs shelving, display cases, and a selection of merchandise to be purchased at wholesale (grains, pasta, milk products, frozen meat, biscuit tins, and cleaning products). That is why he is requesting a loan. This will permit him to launch his productive project, with which he hopes to generate income for his family and also offer employment opportunities.

Upon opening his store, Alexander will be achieving his major desire and he will struggle tirelessly to advance and succeed in positioning it in the sector, to guarantee the economic stability that will allow him to provide his children with a good quality education and a better standard of living and quality of life for all the family.
