David De Jesús's story

David is a 53 year old man, father of two young children. He has been a street vendor all his life. Nowadays he works preparing and selling wafers and fritters, which are very popular products in the municipality of Marinilla, Colombia. He has worked in this activity for 3 years and he says that he feels very happy with his profession. He is requesting a loan to buy basic ingredients for his business, such as wafers, fritters and sauces; and also some inputs such as napkins and paper plates. If he buys them cash, his profit will grow and his income will increase. His biggest dream is to have another wafer cart and in this way be able to offer employment to someone who might need it.
