José Ismael's story

José, 41, studied until high school and now he is married and works in painting and bodywork. The family is comprised of three children, one lives at home and studies nursing, a son-in-law lives with them too. José has a bodywork and painting shop. Since he was 14 years old he learned this trade from a family friend who worked in this trade. He was the one who taught him how to get from his house to work which took 110 minutes by bus, and then a 5 minute walk from the bus stop. He organizes his works schedule according to the amount of work he has. He will use the loan to purchase tools and materials for the workshop. With this he hopes the business grows. José’s dream is for his daughter, after finishing her studies, finds work in which she can put into practice her nursing skills.
