Jose Luis
Jose Luis E. G. lives in the city of Opico in the Department of San Salvador. He lives with his wife and three young children. The oldest, Bryan, is only eleven years old and Jose and Medellín are seven and four years old respectively. It is not easy for Jose, who is just 27, to maintain such a large family. So he bravely opened his own business a couple of years ago, a bakery, which he runs together with his wife. Jose and his family are seeking a loan in order to buy new merchandise and products which will allow them to stock up his bake shop in order to strengthen his business and stabilize his household.
