A loan helped to buy a motor for his canoe so he can start his new occupation removing minerals from the river.

Jose's story

Jose appears before you, moneylenders, with the hope that you can support him with this loan. He wishes to start a mining development business. He will use a canoe with a motor, and he´ll go to the Magdalena River to extract materials, such as sand. It is a natural process, without chemicals, and that will create a job. Jose is head of household, he is currently separated from his wife because of differences, but he is very responsible, and he supports both of his children, who are 7 and 14 years old. He is requesting a loan to buy a motor for his canoe to start this occupation. Jose is a journeyman, and he wants to have this business so he can offer his children a good future. He will offer them the tools (a college degree). This process doesn't affect the ecosystem because he will only remove minerals from the bottom of the river. He wants to start a business so he can thrive together with his neighbors. They all are very poor, and he has faith that this will create more jobs.
