José Alfredo
José, 30, is married and has three children who are 14, 12 and 4 years old respectively. For the last 8 years he’s been working on metal structures; his father taught him. His wife opened a grocery store at home about two years ago and sells ‘pupusas’ [filled, grilled corncakes] on Sundays and washes football players’ uniforms.

The loan he’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy stock merchandise for the store and to repair a polisher he needs for work. With this investment he’ll stock the store since they currently have little stock available to offer customers and demand is high and they can’t meet it. Later on, José would like to buy another soldering machine.

Don José tiene 30 años de edad, es casado y tiene tres hijos de 14, 12 y 4 años respectivamente. Desde hace 8 años se dedica al oficio de estructuras metálicas, su padre fue quien le enseño. Su esposa instalo una tienda en la casa hace unos dos años, vende pupusas los domingos y lava los uniformes de los jugadores de fútbol.


El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar mercadería para la tienda y para reparar una pulidora que necesita para desempeñar su trabajo. Con la inversión, surtirá la tienda, ya que actualmente es poco lo que ofrecen a los clientes y la demanda es bastante y no dan abasto, más adelante don José quiere comprar otro aparato para soldar.
