José is 42 years old and has been a shopkeeper for more than six years. He has a grocery store and butcher's shop in his home in which he serves. José has two daughters who are 14 and 6 years old and his wife works as a teacher. José says that he has a very good customer base because he is already well known in his neighborhood and he treats his customers well. He says that his biggest dream is to have his own vehicle sales business because right now he is also working with his cousin buying and selling vehicles. He says that he needs a lot of capital for this but he doesn't lose hope because he is working well and gradually growing his business.
José is requesting a loan to buy a young bull which he will slaughter and then sell in his butcher's shop. He is grateful for the opportunity that Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva are providing him with.
