José Bacilio's story
José Bacilio A. A., age 60, lives in the La Libertad department. He lives with his family, which is comprised of his wife and two minor children. The children sometimes work and help their father. José is a very hard-working man. He is fully committed to his work in the hope of giving his family a better life. He has been farming for 30 years. He has plenty of experience and a lot of customers. Additionally, he has a business making and selling bricks. He also makes tiles, which are used on roofs. He has ten years of experience in this business. Because José has very good references for being a very responsible person with his customers, his business has been slowly growing. He is requesting a loan to be able to buy cement wholesale. He will also buy all of the tools that are necessary to make bricks and tiles. He wants to fully concentrate on his work.
