Jimmy Jose's story

Jimmy José is 37 and runs a local store. Mr. Jimmy started his business two years ago. His wife motivated him to start a small business in order to make a second income; he works for a company and used part of this salary to start his business. His greatest challenge is to stay competitive with the other businesses. He is also a baker and knows how to make all types of pastries. He sells these in his store and also delivers to customers. The loan that he is now requesting is for the purchase of rice, beans, oil, candy, pop, juice, matches and salt.
