Jose Elvis
Don Jose is 42 years old and rents a home with his wife and his 15 year old daughter who is currently in school. He makes a living selling vegetables: tomatoes, onions, chilies, and chicken, since he has a small farm and has been dedicated to this activity for 5 years, and so, he has gained a lot of experience in sales which helps him to make higher profits. The place where he sells his crops is strategic and is frequented by many people, and he already has a large clientele who prefer his produce because it is fresh and sold at a fair price. Don Jose is a responsible and hard working man and with the earnings he makes from his sales he has been able to settle all his household costs. He wants to make a new investment in his business, but he doesn't have enough money to do so, which is why he is asking for a loan that would allow him to purchase more vegetables and to purchase what he needs to raise chickens and to be able to give a better quality of life to his family.
