José Transito
Jose is 37 years old. He is a single father and lives with his mom, brothers and his daughter.

He has 22 years of experience working in agriculture. Aside from agricultural work he also serves as a museum guard. It was his father who taught him how and encouraged him to perform these activities.

Jose buys agricultural supplies in a city that is 39 kilometers from the municipality where he lives. The distance from his house to where he catches the bus is 8 kilometers, which takes him an hour and a half to walk.

He has requested a loan from 'Fundación Campo' to buy a refrigerator. A few days ago he had electricity installed in his home and now his goal is to sell ice cream. Currently there is no one in his area that sells ice cream, so this could be a good source of income that will allow him to improve his economic situation. Jose wants to open a small store out of his home and supply the community with necessities and by doing so improve his quality of life.

El señor José tiene 37 años de edad, es padre soltero, vive con su mamá, hermanos y con su hija.

Él tiene 22 años de trabajar en las actividades agrícolas. Además de este trabajo, José presta sus servicios como vigilante en un museo. Fue su papá quien le enseño y lo incentivo a desempeñar estas actividades.

José compra los insumos agrícolas en una ciudad que esta a 39 kilómetros del municipio de donde vive y la distancia de su casa hasta donde aborda el autobús es de 8 kilómetros, por lo que camina una hora y media.

Él solicita un préstamo a Fundación Campo, para comprar una refrigeradora, debido a que hace unos días instalaron la energía eléctrica en su casa y su objetivo es vender productos helados, ya que en ese lugar no hay quien venda y eso representaría una buena fuente de ingresos, para que él pueda mejorar su situación económica. José desea instalar su propia tienda en su casa y abastecer a la comunidad de lo necesario y mejorar su condición de vida.
