Jose Andres
José has a metal shop / welding shop. He is 27 years old and lives with his wife and 2 year-old son in a house which belongs to a family member. He started in his trade as an assistant, then bought the machinery he needed and set up his own business with the help of his friends and neighbors. He works from 8.00am to 4.00pm and has been in business for 6 years.

José is currently requesting a loan to buy iron, sheets of metal, paint, sandpaper and polishing disks. This will be a big help as he has some contracts to make a start on and, with these materials available, he will be able to fill his orders.

José's biggest dreams are to own his own home, for his business to grow, and to be able to provide his son with everything he needs.
