José Mario's story

José Mario C. M. is 53 years old. He lives in Zacatecoluca, in La Paz department. José is a single father. His 5 children are all studying. José owns a bakery which is located in his home. His business is very busy and his sales are stable. His children help him make the bread and serve in the business when he is out delivering bread.

José is requesting a loan so that he has the money he needs to buy all the necessary supplies for his business such as: flour, honey, sugar, butter, etc. José is a very responsible man who works hard so that he can provide his children with the best. This is why, for him, keeping his profits stable is very important since the bakery is his only source of income. This means that he has to work hard to improve it every day.
