José María's story

Jose Maria Hernandez Martinez is 53 years old. He lives with his wife, who is a housewife. They live in San Francisco Goteras. located in the department of Usulután. For 25 years years, Jose has been buying and selling cattle. He inherited this business from his father, and he has a lot of experience in it. From Monday through Friday, Jose sells the cattle. On Saturdays and Sundays, he buys the necessary cattle to then raise them and sell them. He is asking for a loan with which he can buy cattle, and a better quality of feed for the animals. This will allow him to increase the price of the cattle and the quality of the product that he sells, and thus increase his sales. Jose is a very hardworking man who depends completely on this business. This is why it is very important for him to keep it afloat, since this is the only source of income that he has. He wants to take advantage not only of the experience that he has, but the land that he has which is suited for raising cattle.
