José Manuel G. G. is 36 years old. He lives in the city of Santa Tecla, which is located in the La Libertad district. For 6 years, he has been buying and selling wood, a business which is located in his home. Thanks to this business, he been successful in supporting his family. This is confirmed by his wife, who does the household chores, and his two children, who are 14 and 12 years old and go to the local school. The business of selling wood is very profitable for José, since he can count on many clients who place large orders, which gives him bigger earnings. He is applying for a loan so that he will have the money needed to buy wood wholesale and thus have more material for his business. José's greatest wish is to increase his earnings and in this way improve the economy of his household.
