José tiene 50 años de edad, es casado y vive con su esposa y sus cuatro hijos en el distrito de San José, una zona exclusivamente dedicada a la pesca, ubicado a 20 minutos de la ciudad de Chiclayo.

Se ha dedicado durante casi toda su vida a la pesca artesanal, lo que logra pescar lo vende en el terminal pesquero de la ciudad de Santa Rosa y allí compra un tipo de pez cartilaginoso llamado raya para luego procesarla y venderla salada en los pueblos aledaños.

Su familia depende de este negocio para sustentarse y debido a que lo que perciben no es suficiente para cubrir sus necesidades, está solicitando un crédito de 2000 nuevos soles que piensa invertir en la compra de mas pescado para ampliar su negocio.

Su mas grande anhelo es poder brindarle a sus hijos un mejor futuro y seguir creciendo como comerciante hasta poder establecerse permanentemente en algún mercado cercano y desde allí vender su producto a sus clientes.
