José
José is 51 years old. He is in a common-law marriage and has 7 children, 3 sons and 4 daughters. He and his family live in the department of Sololá. He grows potatoes, work that he inherited from his parents, because he helped them cultivate the land since he was a little boy. He does this work because he likes to be in contact with nature, and in addition, it is the source of income that he uses to sustain his family.

He is applying for a loan of 7000 quetzales to buy a plot of land (0.0715 hectares) planted in potatoes, to later sell.

José's most important dream is to give a good quality of life to his family.
