José's story

José, aged 43, is married to Arminda González who is a housewife. They have three children, two of them are already self-employed and the youngest attends elementary school.

José inherited his profession from his father who was a carpenter. More than 25 years ago, he launched his own workshop when he realized his need for a larger income. José has many customers because of the high quality of his furniture and his competitive prices within the local market.

Thanks to José's perseverance he was able to send two of his children to school until they completed their high school education. He will use the loan to buy a much needed motorbike to travel to his customers, since he performs carpentry work also at their homes. Moreover, he will need the motorbike to transport finished goods to his customers and save time.
