José Abrahan
José is 70 and was in school up to grade 4. He is married; his wife is a housewife. They have ten children, one of whom has passed away and seven of whom live on their own. Two of their children live with them and help with the farming. Two of José's grandchildren also live with him. Only two of his children, his wife, and two grandchildren depend on him.

José has worked in agriculture since he was 8 years old. A brother taught him this work, because their father left when he was two years old. His work is fifteen minutes away and he travels on foot. This is his only work, and his children help him. He works from 6 am to 2:00 pm.

He will need this loan for the purchase of a calf from his neighbours. He knows the calf, and it is pregnant. He wants the calf. He needs the rest of the loan for the harvest, to pay for the corn de-grainer and to transport the crops to his home.

This will help him because he will be able to harvest more grains; he has already harvested some but wants to harvest more. He needs to find a buyer for the corn. He will invest the money in this in order to have an income and repay his debts from the corn.

His dreams are for God to always give him live so that he can continue cultivating the land and providing his family's daily bread. His harvest is obtained from the sweat of his brow, and this is how he wants to continue making a living and providing for his family.

José de 70 años de edad, estudio hasta cuarto grado, está casado; la esposa se dedica a los oficios domésticos, ellos han procreado 10 hijos en este matrimonio de los cuales uno de ellos ya falleció y 7 de ellos ya están en hogares apartes pero dos de ellos viven con él que le ayudan en la agricultura, en la casa de don José vive también dos nietos por lo tanto solo dos hijos y la esposa y dos nietos dependen de él.

José se dedica a la agricultura desde que tenía 8 años de edad, este trabajo se lo enseño un hermano, ya que el papá los dejo cuando tenía dos años de edad, el trabajo le queda a una distancia de 15 minutos y él viaja a pie, solo a esto se dedica con la ayuda de los hijos que le ayudan a trabajar y lo hace un horario de las 6 de la mañana hasta las doce del mediodía.

El préstamo solicitado lo necesitara, para comprar una ternera que los vecinos le venden , ya que el conoce la ternera y esta con embarazada y él quiere quedase con esa ternera; pero lo demás lo necesitara para sacar las cosechas de trabajo, ya que paga la máquina que le desgrane el maíz y también paga un carretero para que se lo lleve para la casa.

Esto mejorara porque, sacare más luego los granos para el lugar de donde los cultive y así los tendra en casa para poder tenerlos, ya seguro en la casa ya que he sacado una parte y le falta mas también tiene que buscar quien le destuse el maíz y es ahí donde invertiré el dinero y así tener el ingreso y pagar las deudas que uno tiene para hacer la milpa.

Los sueños que tiene es que siempre Dios le preste vida, para seguir cultivando la tierra y tener como llevar el sostén de la casa, ya que esta cosecha que ahorita tiene es con el sudor de su frente y es así como quiero seguir ganando y poder ayudar a su familia.
