Jose's story

José is a member of Melcochita community bank. He is 62 years old, married, and has 3 grown children (ages 25, 22, and 19) that work and are in school.

José is from Ayacucho. He has had various jobs; he worked with the non-profit organization Amigo de los Animales (Friend of Animals) for 6 years but got tired and began to work at a tent selling chicken broth. He worked as an assistant in order to learn the business, and with his savings started his own business selling borth. Currently, he employs 2 assistants.

Since José began working with Finca, he has learned to invest and has received a lot of guidance in running a business. He needs a loan of 1,200 PEN to buy rice, pasta, and eggs. José's dream is to be successful and have his own store space.
