Jose Orley's story

Jose Orley is 42 years old. He is a single father, with a 10-year-old son who goes to school. He lives in his mother's house. He has a visual disability; he is blind. He lives in the family home. They live in the place called La Pila. His family makes clay figures, especially pre-hispanic, and other products that they export to various countries of the world. They are located at the side of the highway to sell [their products]. Now the majority of the residents have been affected by COVID-19.

Jose Orley is a worker in spite of his disability. He goes out to work every day. He sells various clothing, sheets, towels, tablecloths, and vegetables, which he sells going through the sector on a bicycle. He indicates that in spite of his visual difficulty, he is guided by the sound and that he is accustomed [to doing it]. The people of the community appreciate him and are always waiting for him.

At the beginning [of the pandemic], the social isolation left him without work because of the fear of infection, but now he is following the biosecurity protocols.

This loan is to buy [products to fill] orders for towels, sheets, tomatoes, cucumbers, lemons, onions, etc.

His dreams are to have his own shop to continue with his sales and for his family to have good health.
