Jose
José lives in the city of Villa Elisa. He is 37 years of age, single, and has a son aged one year and two months. From a young age he worked in the wholesale food market, where he sold coffee for breakfast to the people who worked there. He did this for about 20 years.


Later he bought a hotdog stand opposite his house, which is located on an important avenue. At night he sold hotdogs from his house. As he saw his sales grow, he decided to sell food in the mornings as well, such as empanadas (meat-filled pastries), fried breaded meats, sandwiches, hamburgers and sodas and beers.


Today José wants to buy a machine to make rotisserie chicken. He plans to use it at the weekends, and has requested this loan so that his business can continue to grow.

El Sr. José, vive en la ciudad de Villa Elisa, tiene37 años de edad, es soltero pero tiene un hijo de 1 año y 2 meses. Según cuenta desde muy joven trabajaba en el Mercado Central de Abasto vendiendo Café como desayuno de los que trabajaban en el lugar, estuvo ahí como 20 años.
Más adelante frente a su casa que está en una avenida muy importante adquirió un carrito de panchos y por las noches empezó en su casa a vender, después como veía que tenia ventas decidió hacer por las mañanas comestibles como empanadas, milanesas, sándwiches, hamburguesas, y venta de gaseosas y cervezas.
Hoy día tiene pensado adquirir una máquina de hace pollo al spiedo, y habilitar para los fines de semana, es por ello que solicita el crédito para poder seguir creciendo.
