Jose's story

Jose is a modest and a hardworking man with great understanding of business. He resides in a very simple house with his family. He is married and a father of one child.
Jose has a general store which is located by his house. This is a very good place for this type of business, where many people come to buy goods every day.
He has been involved in business activities since 2010 and feels so comfortable to run his small store, because he can earn money every day.
Jose applied for a loan in the amount of 1,000 USD to help improved his business activity. He will use this loan to buy additional supplies such as milk, eggs, sugar, rice, coffee, biscuits, salt and candles.
He hopes to run a bigger business in the future.
