José Rigoberto's story

José is a 37 year old man, who studied through high school. He is married and his partner is engaged in domestic services. Together they have two children who attend school, and who depend on them.

José has been running a store for almost a year. He started this business since there are no other stores in the area, and he saw that it was a good business opportunity. So far it has been giving him good results, so he wants to invest more in the store.

The requested funds will be used to buy rice, beans, oil, eggs, and coffee, etc., to stock his store; from which the profits will serve to keep his children going to school. Additionally, he will be able to meet the needs of his customers.

José wants to have a good store, well-stocked with the most-needed items, and he will continue to invest in it in order to give his family the best.
