Edinson De Jesus's story

Edinson is a charismatic, active and helpful man. He is the father of two children, so he works tirelessly day to day to earn a living whatever way he can which allows him to provide for them.

Since about 22 years ago, he has been selling varied high-quality goods at good prices to all kinds of customers. This has made him well-known in the sector and seen his business grow.

The biggest advantage of his work is that it allows him to visit lots of different places and meet new people. This is something he likes and is passionate about.

This has lead him to ask for a loan to strengthen his inventory. He will invest in goods such as jeans, blouses, clothing accessories and other things at wholesalers. This will help him satisfy customer demand and improve the income he generates.

He tells us that his age does not stop him from doing what he enjoys. For this reason, he is always setting himself new targets; one of them being to become a large distributor of goods and create employment opportunities for others. This will help him improve the standard of living for his family, too.
