José's story

José is 33. He is married to Mariela, who is also 33. They have a two year old child.

José is a sacrificing man. He and his father work together making and selling glass articles like shop windows, showcases, tinted glass, and dividers for offices.

Since he was very small, he liked the work his father did. So it is that today he is in charge of administering the business. He does the work every day. He is very grateful because thanks to the work, he was able to finish his educations and become a Public Accountant. He practices this profession in his work as a glass worker.

He is asking for a loan to buy a larger quantity of raw material (glass) due to the large demand for his work. He wants to take maximum advantage of the demand and increase his production to consequently increase his income.
