José's story

Jose G. C. is 61 years old and he lives in the municipality of Santa Rosa de Lima; it is located in the department of La Union. Jose G. is a very humble and hard working person that dreams of having a home in a good state of repair. He works together with his wife in the central market of the municipality in La Union. They sell fruits and vegetables, a business they have had for the past 2 years. It is thanks to this business that they are able to provide for all of the household needs. The home they live in is rented. Jose and his wife are very responsible people and they dream of having a safe home where to live comfortably. For this reason Jose requests a loan, so that they may continue building their own home. With this loan he will be able to purchase all the necessary material, such as: cement, bricks, iron rods, roofing, etc. He will use these materials to finish building their home and have their own home in which to live.
