Jose Marvin's story

Jose Marvin is 49 years old and works as a mechanic. He has been in this business for more than 15 years, always with the goal of earning money for his family. His eldest daughter, a 3 year old, is dependent on him and his wife, so they're responsible for her education and other needs.

He started working in a shop through a friend's recommendation. Over time, Jose came to enjoy the work and with his savings decided to set up his own shop and be his own boss. He is glad of this financing since it is the best opportunity to get ahead. He plans to improve the facilities at the shop.
