Jose Ezequias's story

José Ezequías is 39 years old and lives in Lolotique, in San Miguel department. He is a teacher and lives with his wife and two children aged 8 and 4. He has worked as a teacher in Ciudad Barrios school for the past 10 years. He works from Monday to Friday.

José Ezequías is currently requesting a loan to invest in buying building supplies since he is in the process of remodelling his home. He will buy iron, sand and cement to build some walls and will also install glass windows. This loan will help him to acquire everything he needs to work on his home and make necessary changes, thereby offering his family a more comfortable place to live. One of José Ezequías' aspirations is to continue improving his home and to commit himself to his work since his children depend on it. Through his work, he hopes to be able to provide them with a good education.
