Jose Angel
José arrived in the city of Piedra Negras 22 years ago with his wife Dolores. He is father to six children, four of whom are now married and two of whom still live at home. José has been working in a hardware store for ten years and, with a lot of effort, he managed to buy his own house. He built another room for it but a couple of minor jobs still need to be done.

José is applying for a loan from Kiva in order to finish the room and so that he can decorate it, for one day it will be left to his children's families. José wants to build more rooms in the future and continue expanding his home. However, he will do this later as, for the moment, he wants to finish this first room, adding the final touches so that the room is perfect for use.
