Jose is a businessman from the city of Hato Mayor, an agricultural city surrounded by valleys and mountains. He makes his home in a simple structure with his long-term partner and their four children. This entrepreneurial man is dedicated to selling meat and vegetables. He has been running his butcher shop since the first loan he took out from Esperanza Internacional, almost eight years ago. He plans to use this loan to purchase pork, beef and different types of vegetables.
Jose is excited to be taking out this loan from Esperanza after successfully repaying his previous loans and growing his business. All through the years since starting his business, his life and the lives of his family members have experienced change. He will use his profits to support his family and to improve his business.
