A loan helped to purchase ink, display cases, and shelves for his print shop.


José Manuel's story

José is 26 years old. He studied until the 9th grade in school. He is in a relationship and his partner is a merchant. He has two small children of whom one is a student.

José has had a print shop for 8 years and he learned about the business from his father. He has the print shop in his home. He works from 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and two of his siblings help him.

José will use the loan to purchase ink, display cases, and shelves for his print shop.

He dreams of his business growing and thus giving better living conditions to his family.
