Jose Lenin's story

Jose Lenin Vale R., 55, is a single man. He supports 3 children, all in school. He operates a business making and selling coffins. He's worked at coffin-making for more than 30 years. He started the business on his own after attending a school-workshop where he learned the trade. He decided to set up a place in his house where he could sell his coffins. The problems that Jose faced never kept him from continuing to struggle [to get ahead?]. The money that he wants to borrow is for working capital to buy wood, nails, paint and other basic materials. Jose's greatest hopes are to expand his business and generate more income.
