José Aparicio's story

José is 55 years old and lives in the town of San Juan Opico, department of La Libertad. He lives along with his wife, who dedicates herself to household chores, along with their daughter and granddaughter. José is a very hard-working man who works as a truck driver, transporting all kinds of materials, whether it be wood or sand, and even makes trips for removals. He has two trucks, which are the source of his labor, and thanks to those he counts on daily income. Many times he makes trips from Opico to San Salvador, on which he earns the most. He is requesting the loan with the goal of having the necessary funds to invest in the maintenance of his trucks and make repairs to the truck bed and tie-downs. This will make his trucks more secure as much for him as his customers because it assures he can carry his items safely to their destination. José is a very hard worker who has many customers. This loan is very beneficial for him because it provides job security.
